Paris Builds Barrier Around Eiffel Tower to Limit Terrorism - Bloomberg

Paris Builds Barrier Around Eiffel Tower to Limit Terrorism - Bloomberg: Paris is spending 20 million euros ($22 million) to build a protective barrier around the Eiffel Tower to replace temporary structures that were put up after a series of terror attacks.

“Sadly, the risk of terrorism hasn’t gone away,” deputy mayor Jean-Fran├žois Martins said at a Paris press conference. “It’s not a wall, it’s an aesthetic perimeter.”

Martins wouldn’t confirm a report in Thursday’s Le Parisien newspaper that a clear glass structure would be built around the tower’s esplanade. The form the new structure takes will depend on solutions proposed in response to the city’s call for tenders, he said.
