Austria – calendar of quantitative truck bans for 2021

By | 11 March 2021

Austrian Tyrol does not pay attention to international criticism and publishes an official regulation on further quantitative truck bans for 2021.

The authorities of the Austrian Tyrol have published the previously announced calendar of quantitative bans for the movement of trucks from Germany towards Italy. The introduced restrictions complete the already impressive number of bans on heavy goods vehicles that are in force in this Austrian province. The list of prohibitions (apart from those listed below) can be found in our article available at this link.

On the dates below, from 5:00 am, the police (or automatic control) will stop some heavy goods traffic heading Innsbruck at a specially designated checkpoint on the A12 near Kufstein Nord. Traffic is to be slowed down earlier by messages on the displays on the motorway. About 300 trucks will be passed per hour.

The Tyroleans explain that these restrictions were introduced on the basis of detailed research and experience from previous years. Reducing the number of trucks on the Inntal motorway is to ensure traffic flow on particularly critical days for all road users.

Timetable for the remainder of 2021:

  • March: 15
  • May: 10, 11, 12, 14, 21, 22, 25, 26, 27, 31
  • June: 1, 4
  • July: 5, 12, 19, 26
  • October: 27
  • November: 2, 3, 10, 17, 24
  • December: 1, 2, 9, 13, 14, 15

Overall in 2021 there will be 35 days with prohibitions.
