Since Monday, August 19, 2019, fifty workers start to work and to secure the cathedral which were interrupted since July 25

Le préfet de la région Ile-de-France, préfet de Paris, Michel Cadot, gave the authorization to continue the renovation after a visit of the Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris. Since Monday, August 19, 2019, fifty workers start to work and to secure the cathedral which were interrupted since July 25 because of the risk of lead contamination. A resumption of work validated by the labor inspectorate after multiple checks on devices and protocols set up for workers. A consolidation of the structure before the major renovation planned for 2020. The consolidation works consist of placing hangers under the flying buttresses, install temporary ceilings below and above the vault (to be able to control and release the rubble), dismantle the scaffolding built around the spire that was welded by the fire. All this avoiding any falling rocks or imbalance that would damage the Gothic structure.
