Genoa - A stiffening of positions on large transport vehicles in the Tyrol. Austria has set the dates in which caps will be imposed on the flow of heavy trucks through the region. The Tiroler Tageszeitung has announced that on March 31, April 3 and 26, as well as May 2, only 250-300 trucks per hour will be allowed on the Inntal motorway towards Brennero. For environmental considerations, in 2018 there will be a total of between 20 and 25 days with restrictions on heavy-truck traffic. In the past, the measure has been criticized by Berlin and Munich, as it often results in long queues in Germany.
