The long-term objective of the LIFE BrennerLEC project is the application of the holistic concept of a “low emission corridor” (LEC) for the A22 highway. The project aims to implement and validate a set of measures to provide clear environmental benefits, in terms of the abatement of air pollution emissions to help implement the Air Quality Directive, the abatement of noise pollution, and the abatement of greenhouse gas emissions within the context of the Roadmap to a Single European Transport Area – Towards a competitive and resource efficient transport system.

The project will carry out extensive monitoring to consolidate a knowledge base (with particular attention to certain environmental indicators, such as black carbon), and the development of environmental policy and legislation in highway environments.
