The ban will kick in in 2020.

The local government actually agreed a ban would be a good idea back in 2007, but setting a date for the change has been difficult.

The move will mean other roads need to be widened to take the extra traffic. That work should start soon.

Under the new plan, cars will not be allowed on Langstrasse from 5.30am to 10pm.
