Other LEZ

Will other cities in Belgium also introduce a LEZ?

Yes: there is a low emission zone in the city of Antwerp since 1/02/2017. Ghent will also introduce a LEZ from 2020 and Mechelen and Willebroek form 2021.

Note: The access criteria of the LEZ in Flanders are not exactly the same as the LEZ in Brussels. Relevant information about the LEZ in Flanders can be found here.

In December 2018, the Walloon Government passed a pre-project law that will make it possible for Walloon municipalities to implement permanent or occasionnal low emission zones. Note that these zones will not function equally as the Brussels zone of the zones in Flanders. More info here (in French):
