Madrid set to become first European city to scrap low-emissions zone  

Madrid is set to become the first European city to scrap a major urban low-emissions zone after regional polls left a rightwing politician who views 3am traffic jams as part of the city’s cultural identity on the cusp of power.

Isabel Díaz Ayuso, who is expected to become the new Popular party (PP) president of the Madrid region, believes night-time congestion makes the city special and has pledged to reverse a project known as Madrid Central, which has dramatically cut urban pollution.

During the election campaign, Ayuso told El Pais: “I do not think [air pollution] is a reason for enjoyment but it is a sign [of the] identity of our city, that the street is always alive.” Pollution is “part of the life in Madrid”, she said, adding that the city’s nightlife “goes hand in hand with traffic jams”.  Read more HERE.
