The Préfet of the Département Nord, in cooperation with the city of Lille, announced yesterday that the Crit’Air vignette will be mandatory in this city. The vignette will be mandatory in cases of air pollution peaks. The exact area in which the vignette will be mandatory is not yet clear, but it will be defined in the coming days. Until then, the citizens of Lille as well as foreigners who want to drive through Lille are encouraged to purchase a Crit’Air vignette as soon as possible.
On February 10 2017 a study on a permanent environmental zone will be subjected to a vote in the city council in Lille.
