The Right Bank of the Seine will be exclusively for pedestrian use
As a very important step towards pollution control and with an aim to promote healthy living, Paris will now make the Right Bank of the Seine river pedestrian only, just like the Left Bank. This decision has been in the works for a while, but the plan had its opponents. But finally the objections have been overcome, especially when a car-free trial showed a remarkable drop in air and noise pollution. This move is going to be very helpful in reviving the Unesco-recognised banks of the Seine. For those planning a trip to Paris, you have one more addition to your itinerary!
