Champs-Elysées to be transformed into a giant garden



The project will reduce car traffic and create an "extraordinary garden" almost two kilometers long.

Paris authorities plan to invest a quarter of a billion euros in the reconstruction of the Champs-Elysees. The program to update one of the most prestigious shopping streets in Europe will start in the second half of 2024, after the summer Olympic Games. The project involves creating an "extraordinary garden" almost two kilometers long, writes The Guardian.

"The legendary avenue has lost its splendor over the past 30 years. Parisians are gradually abandoning it. Although it is often called the most beautiful avenue in the world, those of us who work nearby every day are not at all convinced of this," commented the Committee of the Champs Elysees.

The campaign to reconstruct the avenue began in 2018 when public figures took part in hearings on changing the French capital's main street. It was decided that traffic flows on the Champs-Élysées would be reduced, and pedestrian and green areas would be significantly expanded. 

The reconstruction will be carried out following the concept presented by PCA-Stream - the Champs-Elysées will be transformed into a giant garden, ecological, desirable, and inclusive. The work is expected to be fully completed by 2030. 

The avenue is France's main shopping corridor and brings together dozens of flagship stores of international brands. Before the 2020 crisis, foot traffic on the Champs-Elysées was estimated at 100,000 people a day, 72% of whom were tourists. Car traffic was estimated at 3 thousand cars per hour, making the air over the avenue the most polluted in the city. The authors of the reconstruction project believe that as it stands, the Champs-Elysées has accumulated many problems, including mass tourism, uncontrolled parking, and consumerism.
