In less than a year, France is expected to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games in the city of Paris. Construction projects that were launched in anticipation of the project are now nearing their due timeline. The final phases of the projects are being implemented to be done in time. One such project is the cleaning of the pollution in the River Seine. The opening ceremony of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games is set to be hosted along its banks. The river is located in the nation’s capital city. It is also expected to be a scene of the open-water events that the tournament will host. It is pivotal that the waterway is clean and safe enough for the participants in these tournaments. Companies such as AECOM have been brought on board to deliver these prospects in time for the Paris 2024 games.

Swimming in the River Seine for the Olympic and Paralympic Games

The River Seine flows for about 13 kilometers in the country’s capital, Paris, and the waterway is home to over 30 bridges. On these bridges, one can see some of France’s most cherished historical gems such as the Eiffel Tower. One of the major shortcomings that the River Seine has is the aspect that swimming is illegal. This has been so for over a century, but it has been for the sole reason that the river is polluted. Launched in 2017 after France won their bid for the Olympic and Paralympic, the concerted cleaning started. One of the measures put in place is dealing with the sewage system of the country. The construction of the sewage treatment plant Archer, the second largest in the world, was one of the ways. Another measure is the construction of an underground tank to contain excess drainage water overflowing to the River Seine.

The Infrastructure for the Preparation of the Olympic Games.

Hosting the Olympics and Paralympic Games is a major commitment for any country from many perspectives. One of these is the country’s climate as the organizer’s insight that the games will emit little carbon. They speculate that the Paris Games will emit a third of what was emitted in London. In the lead-up to the Olympic and Paralympic games, the country has initiated over 70 construction projects. The city is cutting carbon emissions on its project by using existing or temporary infrastructure for 95% of its needs. To accommodate the expected influx of visitors to the Games, new transport links are been built. While it has already been acknowledged that some of the network is planned to link up several Olympic sites, it won’t be ready in time for the Games. There are plans to provide extra river boats and cycle lanes.Paris 2024 Summer Olympics: How to plan the perfect trip, from best hotels to how to get tickets | The Independent

The Paris 2024 Games Official Partners to Deliver to the Success of the Olympics

One of the official partners to deliver the Paris 2024 games is Groupe ADPE. Groupe ADP develops and manages airports, including Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly, and Paris-Le Bourget. Another is Sanofi, dedicated to supporting people through their health challenges. Other companies also attributed as official partners include Air France and TotalEnergies. The Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games are expected to take shape as a fruitful one and one that is highly anticipated. In addition to all this is whether the French themselves are in the mood to celebrate the Games. This summer saw waves of social and political unrest in the country, but traditional sporting events like the Rugby World Cup have played a role in bringing the country together for the Olympic and Paralympic games.
