The Eiffel tower surrounded by a glass wall to protect from terrorists

Given the terrorist threat in France, the Eiffel tower will encompass a bulletproof glass wall. About it reports France 24.

The iron railing at the base of the Eiffel tower exists since 2012. Temporary fencing was established in June last year. However, this is quite ugly barrier needs to replace the 2.5-metre glass wall.

The installation wall should be completed by the autumn of this year.

Glass wall should be part of a broader plan to modernize the Eiffel tower and the territory near it, which provided 300 million euros. The plan also provides for the reorganization of pedestrian traffic around the tower and improving the conditions of area attractions, including reduction of time in queues.

Recall that in 2015-2016 France experienced a series of terrorist attacks that jihadists organized.
