Munich’s ban on through-traffic trucks

Under Munich’s clean-air initiative that went info effect on February 1, 2008 there is a ban on the through traffic of trucks weighing more than 3.5 tonnes. The barrier concept diverts through-traffic trucks to the A99 freeway, which generally alleviates traffic jams at the city limits. Instead, traffic is diverted and rerouted via warning signs in outlying areas (Sign 253 of the StVO, the German traffic regulations, with the words “Lieferverkehr frei”, delivery vehicles permitted), and with detour signs to the nearest freeway.

Delivery trucks with origin from or destination to Munich are excluded from the ban. This means that deliveries to and from the Munich trade fair are not affected.

However, trucks with destinations outside of Munich are not permitted to take the A94 towards Munich when leaving the trade fair. Doing so would make them through-traffic, which is prohibited.
