- The measure should be extended to passenger cars to increase its impact on GHG emissions by promoting a rejuvenation of the private car fleet.
- The environmental benefits of this measure should be quantified to increase support from stakeholders.
The Ministry of Transport introduced road charging for heavy duty vehicles on national roads in 2001. The government promotes lorries that are more environmentally friendly by charging them lower fees than the more polluting ones. The measure is not included in the NECP, mainly because it is a long standing transport policy measure that is not counted towards greenhouse gas emission reduction efforts as its primary goal is to improve air quality.
