Expansion zero emission zone city centre Groningen

Together with residents, companies and transporters in the city center of Groningen, a first test case in the Oude Kijk in 't Jatstraat will be used to investigate what is needed to keep the (inner) city functioning well with a zero-emission zone and possibly a larger delivery time window area.

This includes topics such as loading and unloading places, with or without electric charging points, logistics hubs, better coordination about the use of public space (advertisements, terraces, parked bicycles), specific access policies for different target groups and vehicles via the exemption policy and the accessibility of parking spaces and garages for residents and visitors.

Digital enforcement

Establishing a zero emission zone also requires a different, more effective, way of enforcement. To investigate whether ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) cameras are the answer to this, a trial is being conducted in the city center of Groningen with electronic enforcement based on ANPR cameras.

The results are still very promising; the technology works well and the software is workable for employees.
