Subscribe to RSS - Urban Vehicle Access Regulations

Urban vehicle access regulations (UVARs) is a form of traffic management that regulates access in specific urban locations according to vehicle type, age, emissions category – or other factors such as time of day, or day of the week. UVARs can include Low Emission Zones (LEZs) and/ or Congestion Charging and involve a wide range of considerations in implementation.

Urban vehicle access regulations are becoming an increasingly popular method of managing vehicle flows through urban areas.

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.
