GREATER PARIS AREA: WHAT FUTURE FOR THE MOTORWAYS, RING ROAD AND EXPRESSWAYS

Share news
Following an international consultation, AREP Ville, part of the consortium led by the British architecture firm Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP), was selected alongside three other multidisciplinary teams to develop scenarios on the future use of major road infrastructure in the Greater Paris area. This is part of a scientific and innovative approach that builds on the White Paper for sustainable, intelligent and optimized mobility by 2030 in the Paris Region, a document drafted by the members of the Greater Paris Metropolitan Forum.

The teams will develop medium- and long-term scenarios and put forward concrete proposals for the gradual development of road infrastructure while reflecting on ways of transforming its functions, use and urban integration. They will also formulate ideas on how to best host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, which is a high-profile global event. The proposals will have to take into account the consequences in terms of cost and traffic flow and will be compared with the projects and investments that have already been confirmed for these events.
The project is led by the Greater Paris Metropolitan Forum and brings together the French State, the Grand Paris Metropolitan Authority and several local authorities, such as the City of Paris and Région Ile-de-France. A public exhibition will be organized in 2019 to showcase the outcome of the studies.
