The love locks are removed from the Arts bridge in Paris definitely. The operation will give more spaces for artistic works until the next autumn. After that, the glazing panels will take place across the whole bridge.
The operation began on June 1st: Hundreds of thousands of love locks were removed by municipal services. 45 tons of Locks have been collected on the famous bridge. “Bruno Julliard, first deputy of the Mayor of Paris claimed that Paris wants to remain the capital of romance and love, but without the Locks that damage our heritage.”
About One Million Love Locks collected
Between 700,000 and one million locks have to be taken down. The Love Locks fashion phenomenon engendered two major problems: a sustainable degradation of the bridge and a risk to the safety of visitors, Parisians and tourists.
Bruno Julliard added that a reflection on recycling the locks is underway.
The Visitors will discover the bridge Le Pont des Art dressed by the works of four street artists selected by the Paris gallery, Jace, El Seed, Brusk and Pantonio.
A custom glass plates shall be fixed in Autumn on the Pont des Arts and on the pont de l’Archevêché.
