Several thousand vehicles will be left out of the center of Athens by the "greening" of the ring, which returns to the life of the Athenians from October 25, with a large reduction in the "free" for exceptional traffic within its limits, which were given generously until today.

With the new measures, all Euro 5 category vehicles remain virtually out of the ring, regardless of emissions, as well as a significant part of the total number of Euro 6 passenger vehicles in Attica, which exceed carbon dioxide emissions of 120 gr.

What citizens and drivers say

The majority of Athenian drivers are in favor of tightening the existing vehicle entry framework in the Ring, provided that the competent authorities are brought to the attention of a number of additional issues, such as the possibility of free movement for certain categories of employees (hospitals, doctors). .).

The tightening of the entrance frame of vehicles in the center of Athens will be a measure of decongestion from the intense traffic problem in the streets of the center and around, claim citizens and drivers, in a relevant report of 9.84. They propose the need for the measure, provided, however, that special categories of workers who travel daily by vehicle to work, such as hospitals, will be excluded.

On the other hand, there are some other views of drivers who appear to disagree with the strict entry of vehicles in the Ring. They claim that the implementation of the new ring will reward those who still use their vehicles for their daily movement in their work in the center of Athens. On the one hand, they recognize the traffic problem on the streets of Athens, but on the other hand, they ask for the review of the existing framework, always aiming at the free entry of additional categories of vehicles in the Ring.

According to the recent decisions of the inter-ministerial meeting regarding the traffic of vehicles in the center of the city, except for the monasteries - scales which will continue to be able to circulate alternately on weekdays, within the Ring of Athens will circulate freely:

  • electric vehicles,
  • natural gas and LPG vehicles,
  • hybrid vehicles and
  • Euro 6 class vehicles emitting less than 120 g of CO2.

At the same time, the number of licenses that will be granted for exceptional movement within the Ring is drastically limited. The aim is to reduce these permits by at least half, while revising the loading and unloading framework.

For the controls of compliance with the measures, a strict policing plan will be implemented by the Ministry of Citizen Protection, in collaboration with the Municipal Police.
