浪漫塞纳河 左岸新风光(有声)

Now if you've been to Paris in the past couple of months, you might have noticed a new addition to its many attractions. A mile-long stretch of road along the Left Bank of the Seine has been turned into a new riverside walkway with bars, floating gardens and sports areas. Our correspondent Hugh Schofield has been cycling along it.

Twilight, early autumn, Paris and here I am, cycling along the edge of the River Seine, along what they call the "berge", the quayside. The point is, just a few weeks ago, this was roadway. It was the main drag out of Paris on the Left Bank. It would have been chock-a-block with cars. Now it's been completely redone and pedestrianised and around me there're bars, groups of people picnicking, people with their feet dangling over the edge, children, people jogging, cyclists. On a beautiful evening like this one, it really is quite magical.

It's a stretch of a mile that's been opened up from the Eiffel Tower to opposite the Louvre, nothing to do with the summer Paris-Plage, which is an ephemeral thing on the other bank. This is a big permanent change to the Paris cityscape and one which both Parisians and visitors to the city have already taken to their hearts.
