public authorities seek to reassure about the impact of traffic restrictions during the Olympic Games

“There is no question of slowing down our activity.” Like Thibault Darsy, the human resources director of Doctolib, the leaders of Ile-de-France companies, when we questioned them, a few weeks ago, about how they anticipated the summer of 2024 and the constraints linked to the Olympic Games and Paralympics (from July 26 to August 11, then from August 28 to September 8), responded that they were rather inclined not to slow down compared to a usual summer.

“Penalize economic life as little as possible, but also social life and the life of local residents, while ensuring security”this is precisely the message that the Paris police chief, Laurent Nuñez, wanted to convey by presenting, Wednesday November 29, with the mayor (Socialist Party) of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, the mayor (Socialist Party) of Saint-Denis, Mathieu Hanotin, and the president of Paris 2024, Tony Estanguet, the security perimeters, which will be set up around the various Olympic sites, as well as the elements of traffic regulation during the period of the Games.

“The challenge for us is to ensure that we can experience this exceptional period that will be the Games while preserving the activities of the city,” assured Mrs. Hidalgo. “We will guarantee the conditions for normal life”added Mr. Hanotin, while adding: “With adaptations, because there will be constraints, we must not deny it, but the different traffic and security perimeters will be there to better experience them. »

In this case, these perimeters will consist of two security zones as close as possible to the sites and two traffic zones around these sites. Regarding security, a first level of protection, known as SILT (from the internal security and fight against terrorism law) will be deployed. To enter, you will have to be searched. A second level will only be accessible to accredited people or those with a ticket.

Registration platform and QR Code

Regarding the circulation of motorized vehicles (two or four wheels), blue and red perimeters will be put in place. In the blue zone, only the vehicles of people who live there, work there or who have to go to a business or restaurant (delivery workers) will be authorized to circulate. In the red zone, vehicle circulation will be prohibited, unless there is an exemption.

These restrictions (which will not apply to bicycles or pedestrians) will be applied two and a half hours before the start of the competitions and up to one hour after them. In the center of Paris (Concorde, Invalides, Grand Palais, Champ-de-Mars, Trocadéro), they could be effective from 6:30 a.m. to midnight.
