Coronavirus measures

The City of Brussels has taken several decisions in order to best respect the measures of the federal government in the fight against the coronavirus (Covid-19). More info: coronavirus measures by the City of Brussels.


Low Emission Zone: new ban from 2020

The Low Emission Zone (LEZ) is applied in Brussels since 1 January 2018. This measure prohibits certain vehicles to drive in Brussels. From 1 January 2020, the diesel vehicles under the Euro 3 standards will also also be banned.

Please note: due to the coronavirus, fines are temporarily suspended. The fines are postponed until the first day of the month following the end of the federal government's measures. This measure will allow all people affected by this virus to continue to make essential movements.

There is a transition period of 3 months, in which offenders will only receive warnings. From April 2020, there will be fines for vehicles covered by the new restrictions.
