Transport system in Paris will not be ready in time for the 2024 Olympic games- Mayor
The transport system in Paris will not be ready in time for the 2024 Olympic games.
This according to the mayor of the French capital Anne Hidalgo.
She said that while the games infrastructure will be ready, solutions for homelessness will also be a problem.
Nearly 15 million spectators and accredited people are expected to attend the summer Olympic Games in France in July and August next year.
The transport infrastructure in Paris is already under pressure, with commuters and tourists alike complaining of poor frequency, overcrowding and uncleanliness.
The mayor added that she wanted to use the Olympics as a chance to find a long-term solution to the issue of people sleeping on streets and inside metro stations in pairs.
The Olympic games runs from July 26 to august 11.
