Roads in central Paris have been closed in preparation for the final stage of the Tour de France on Sunday, September 20. The race, which has set off from Mantes-la-Jolie, will see the riders enter Paris from the south via Boulevard des Maréchaux and northwards onto Avenue du General Leclerc, before continuing towards the Seine. Areas around the Jardin des Tuileries and the Champs-Élysées, where the race will end, have been cordoned off to make way for the race.
A heightened security presence and a significant disruption to transportation are to be expected in central Paris for the duration of the race, with a lingering disruption likely in the vicinity of the Champs-Élysées for the remainder of the day as clean-up operations begin.
Individuals in Paris are advised to monitor the situation and expect a heightened security presence and transportation disruptions.
