Transport Minister Clément Beaune warns that traffic will be particularly difficult during the Olympics.
If you live in the Paris region or visit from time to time, you are well aware of the chaotic traffic situation there. It is a known fact that Paris, along with Marseille, is one of the most congested cities in France. This is due to a traffic plan aimed at reducing the dominance of cars and making life difficult for drivers. Unfortunately, the situation is not expected to improve, especially with the upcoming Paris Olympic Games scheduled from July 26 to August 11, 2024.
Attention! Since 2015, specific vehicles have been subject to traffic restrictions in major cities due to Crit’Air stickers. Shall we review together? #MonProjetPlusResponsable

Be prepared to spend a significant amount of time in traffic jams if you need to travel in the capital or the region during this period. Despite our expectations, the Minister of Transport, Clément Beaune, does not provide reassurance. He explains that “on competition days, it will be difficult to navigate Paris” due to the “hardcore” traffic plans that will be implemented and the closure or reduction of lanes on many major roads.
However, the minister also emphasizes that “there will obviously be exemptions and specific rules for professionals”. Additionally, there will be “a consultation phase until the beginning of next year.” By the end of November or at the beginning of December at the latest, the long-awaited traffic plans for Paris will be presented. In any case, we will once again have no choice but to adapt.
