We all know that walking around Beirut is not an easy task! Cars everywhere, services-taxi honking non-stop, motos zigzagging…
Achrafieh 2020 took this matter into its own hands and came up with a CAR FREE DAY initiative. The event is scheduled to take place in its 1st edition on September 2, 2012. Thanks to them, this Sunday, you will be able to take some time to discover Achrafieh on foot or on bike, quietly and stress free!
Many activities are scheduled in Achrafieh for this special day. The area will be divided into several zones:
- Quartier des Arts : Abdel Wahab el Inglizi street / Sodeco
- Quartier Sportif : Sassine – Independance street
- Quartier des Délices: Furn el Hayek
- Quartier du Souvenir: Ibrine neighbourhood
- Quartier Vert: Ghandour el Saad street neighbourhood
Obviously, you can’t take your car to drive in the neighbourhood, but parking is available at ABC Mall, around AUST and Sodeco Square. Charles Malek Avenue and Alfred Naccache Road will be functioning as normal.
You can rent bikes in Sassine and Sodeco Squares allowing you to safely move from zone to zone and discover Achrafieh in a new light.
For more information you can call 01 210452, 76 79580 or take a look at the Achrafieh 2020 website.
