At the start of December the Brussels-Capital Region reached an internal agreement on the introduction of a ‘City Toll’ or ‘Intelligent Kilometre Charge’. The road charging project, called SmartMove, is to be introduced in 2022 and aims to reduce the number of individual journeys by car by 25% by 2030.
