Per many sites, Paris is walking back its proposed ban on diesel vehicles and now is calling it just a goal. Local opposition was high and most commentators suggested it was going to be difficult to achieve (France is only proposing a ban on the SALE of new gasoline vehicles by 2040, which means such cars will be prominent on French streets through the 2050's).

So those planning to drive their diesel cars to the Games can rest a bit more secure.

Yep, but not inside the City of Paris' walls/périphérique ring road (thanks to Hidalgo). Just like it's already the case regarding the older cars (i.e. those purchased/built/manufactured before 1997 which are banned since last summer from City of Paris streets...thanks again to Hidalgo and her Greens/communists/far-left friends)

A "twinning agreement" between LA and Paris re the Olympics. Mostly fluff about environment and global warming, but there may be a legitimate sharing of skills, techniques and information re marketing, operations, etc.

A bit more about the twinning agreement.

“The partnership will focus on three key areas: the fight against climate change, solidarity and innovation”

If Garcetti pushes these priorities he will become the least popular mayor in history. I would say that traffic, sidewalk and road repair, derelicts and schools are the only issues that resonate all over town.

Of course, I assume both Hidalgo and Garcetti are more interested in state or national offices at this point, which means you have to get into the news frequently and talk about nebulous concepts.

Some details on the joint Olympics Comm. and their agenda. In brief:

reduce cost and complexity
sustainability
innovation
legacy
each other’s experience
effective transition
inclusiveness

Of these, the only really important one is the first; the rest are either window dressing or buzz words.

The other really important one, security, didn't even make the list.

A summary of leftist criticism of the Paris Olympics, with St. Denis as a focus.

Many of the same issues are raised in LA but seem much less cogent there given the fact of private funding.

As ever, you just come here for your negative posts about Paris, just for, in fine, say how better L.A is...

Anyway, real news for Paris 2024:

Tomorrow and friday, the IOC will be in Paris for the first Orientation Seminar.

You really should stop playing the fool. I link to both good and bad press in English that is not duplicative of what we already have.

In any event, as you can read, I am generally dismissive of the criticisms by the way I phrase the post. I apologize if your English is too weak to catch this.

Lots of gorgeous stuff there; the French almost always have a great sense of style.

Sounds like a fairly minor annoyance for Olympics visitors. But it may result in some debates over how to allocate funds, mismanagement and the usual political stuff.

Not to mention that Paris already has one of the best public transportation systems in the world..so... as Pesto wrote, those delays regarding the new lines and extensions will only be a minor issue for Olympics visitors.


Paris transports, existing network:

Métro & inner suburb Trams:




---


RER & suburban lines:




---


All together (Métro, Trams, RER, Suburban lines & freeways):






P.S. And of course, there are also hundreds of Bus lines... (oh and the maps above are not up to date I believe, some new Tram lines & Métro extensions are missing if I'm not mistaken)

What's this?! Some deliciously delayed schadenfreude? So what say you, all the Paris 2012 supporters who went on about London's transport system and the risk of going to a city where one of the major transport routes wasn't yet built but which ran perfectly smoothly when the Games arrived as promised? Hmmmm? Hmmmmm? HMMMM?

Paris will surely have no problems transport-wise even without the new additions, but it is amusing.

It's also fun, since I've spent the past two years defending Paris from some of the more ridiculous LA supporters to slip back into a more natural (friendly) enmity. Six Nations this weekend PdP.
