Construction scaffolding weighs about two hundred tons. They were installed even before the fire to restore the spire of the cathedral.
In Paris, builders began dismantling the scaffolding near Notre Dame's spire. This was reported in the newspaper Le Monde on Monday, June 8.
The scaffolding deformed heavily in a fire last year. The metal structures weigh about 200 tons and were installed at the spire for restoration work even before the fire.
Now, in order to dismantle them, workers will have to perform quite complex manipulations, and then - to lower the damaged structure to the ground using cranes says the publication. It is expected that the work will last all summer.
Recall that the restoration of Notre Dame was resumed earlier in Paris. Builders due to quarantine stopped restoration work in the burnt-out cathedral but now returned to the site.
It was also reported that the square in front of Notre Dame was first opened a year after the fire. The main reason that prevented Parisians and city guests from accessing the square was lead contamination recorded after the fire.
