Vehicles restrictions to control air quality during Universiade games
Yellow labeled vehicles that didn’t meet the National I emission standards will be forbidden to run in the streets of Shenzhen. the city government has the right to reserve and restrict high emission vehicles from coming into the city.
High emission vehicles entering the city will ruin air quality making it substandard during the Universiade games. By the end of July, greener fuel with National IV standard will be promoted citywide and environment commission is tightening inspection for high emission vehicles, buses, and dump trucks.
This move is to improve the environment and hope to reduce pollution. The environmental protection authority will work faster on constructing the 11 waste water treatment facilities, that is expected to reduce water pollution along with chemical emissions. The city is aiming for air quality to be as the same quality with Beijing during the time of the 2008 Olympics.
For the city to achieve a greener Universiade, they must implement a contingency plan that includes restricting vehicles by using odd-even numbering scheme when the air quality deteriorates or when the weather turns bad. The city will also be using electric powered vehicles to be using as transport for the Universiade participants.
