Athletes' village will be ready on time -Paris 2024 CEO

STORY: "We are exactly where we need to be one year out from taking over the village as the organising committee... on time and on budget as we say," Thobois said from the top of one of the buildings.

Some 6,000 will live in the neighborhood, which spans over the suburban cities of Saint-Ouen, Saint-Denis and L'Ile Saint-Denis.

Security, however, has been a hot topic following the 2023 Champions League final debacle and amid tensions over the reform of the pension system.

Thobois said there will be a police station in the village and that the Interior Ministry has launched a program around petty crimes as well as added security in public transport.
