New Green, Micromobility Friendly Plan Approved for Paris

-

Paris / France

Over recent years Paris has already been making the news for all the right reasons when it comes to micromobility. As we’ve reported here and here, the progressive Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo was re-elected last year for a second six-year term and has ramped up her already ambitious plans to make Paris greener and more micromobility friendly. The Paris 2024 Olympics are an important milestone goal when the world’s attention focuses upon the city and its new enhancements.

On 10th January 2021 Hidalgo announced approval for a €250 million (A$395 million) plan to transform the famous Champs-Élysées into an ‘extraordinary garden’. It will roughly halve the space allotted to cars, greatly increase the area’s tree cover and seek to encourage more small-scale shops along the avenue’s flanks.

There will also be protected bike lanes and wider footpaths.

The current sunken roadway entrance will be capped to create more green space.

You can download a highly detailed plan with wonderful large scale artists’ renderings via the design architects’ website here.
