In a meeting held this week, Barcelona has agreed to ban cars which are over 20 years old from driving on the road on working days in 40 municipalities.

The move is aimed at reducing pollution, as part of the government´s strategy to reduced emissions by 30% within 15 years, and by 10% in the next 5 years.

The restrictions will not come into force until 2019 however, when cars registered before 1997 and vans before 1994, will not be allowed to drive on working days.

Between now and 2019, plans will be made for the implementation of the scheme, including an awareness campaign, and strengthening public transport links in areas which may be considered deficient. The first stage of the plan will be presented before July of this year.
