Notre Dame Cathedral Square temporarily closed due to high lead levels


- Advertisment -

The area has been a recurring target for measurements since the fire that severely damaged the cathedral in April 2019; Even because of the repairs, the authorities estimate that worship activities will not be able to resume at least until 2024.

Due to the concentration of lead dust detected in recent days, at levels higher than “usual” in Paris, the French police ordered the temporary closure of the areas around the Notre Dame Cathedral.

The area has been a recurring target of measurements since the fire that caused serious damage to the cathedral in April 2019. Thus, the Police Prefecture, advised by the health authorities of the Paris metropolitan region, has limited access for pedestrians and vehicles such as precautionary measure, informs Franceinfo.

“As soon as the cleaning is carried out and the set of registered values ​​return to sufficiently low levels, the square will be open to the public again,” explained the prefecture in its note, in which it does not explain the reasons that would have derived from this rebound in lead powders.

French President Emmanuel Macron visited the reconstruction works in April to coincide with the second anniversary of the fire, which initially raised fears for the cathedral as a whole. The authorities estimate that worship activities in the interior will not be able to resume until at least 2024.
