Last Thursday, Tyrol introduced a truck ban on transit on local roads. From July 6, motorways in this region will also have a summer ban on truck traffic.

From June 20, transit traffic is forbidden on Tyrol’s local roads, according to the Austrian news agency APA. Drivers in the summer use other roads than motorways more often to avoid traffic jams or road tolls. The Tyrolean government made the decision on the ban in favour of the residents of smaller towns, where the traffic increased due to drivers avoiding motorways. According to the APA, exits from the motorway in Innsbruck will be closed for transit traffic.

Bavarians are outraged

The Bavarian government has reacted to the information about the ban with great indignation:

The behaviour of the Tyrolean people is shocking, it is pure harassment, „said Hans Reichhart, Bavarian Minister of Transport. Reichhart thinks that the new regulations introduced by Tyrol are incompatible with EU law.

„I expect the European Commission to cease this behaviour quickly and make sure that people can travel freely around Europe.”
