The UAB has begun to work on reducing pollution on campus, in accordance with the policies set down in the Healthy and Sustainable Campus, and more specifically in the UAB Mobility Plan, which aims to foster the use of public transport among members of the community travelling to and from campus, promote a rational use of private vehicles, acheive universal accessibility to campus, and encourage UAB members to travel using active means of transport.

The work being done on the Central Axis will turn the street into a Low Emissions Zone (Zona de Baixes Emissions, ZBE), be a new place for people to stroll and meet, and improve the image of this part of the campus.

The first part of this remodelling consists in eliminating the park space on each of the roadsides. These areas will be transformed into gardens and pedestrian zones, with picnic tables and benches. Another action will focus on reducing the transit of motor vehicles between buildings B and C. The works are expected to finalise in September 2021.
