The Ring Road in Paris celebrates its 50th anniversaryH On the anniversary, the Paris mayor plans to make major changes to encourage carpooling. These changes will take effect after the Olympic Games (OG) in 2024.
In fact, this development will first appear during the Olympic Games. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) requires host cities to create priority routes to facilitate the movement of supporters to various venues.
This change will be permanent after the Olympics. At about three-quarters of 35 kilometers of the Paris ring road, the left lane will be converted into a common lane for cars that can also be used by public transport and taxis.
This program is part of a larger effort to reduce the number of cars on Paris’ roads and reduce pollution. The municipal authorities are aware that this program will have a significant impact on the daily lives of Parisians. According to city data, of the 1.2 million vehicles that travel daily, 82% carry only one person.
As in other major cities, these shared car lanes will be marked with white diamonds and will only be restricted between 6:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. and between 3:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. The city will pay 18.7 million euros For signage needed cameras that read license plates to spot scammers.
