Rust threatens the structural integrity of the Eiffel Tower, but repairs are unlikely to begin before 2030, the Financial Times reported.

In order to remove the rust on the tower, you need to remove all the lead paint from it. It is difficult to do this before 2024, the publication quotes a representative of the authorities of the seventh municipal district of Paris.

The condition of the Eiffel Tower does not allow talking about the threat of its collapse, said the director of the Society for the Exploitation of the Eiffel Tower (SETE) Patrick Ruivo. He added that the identified defects are not critical.

According to him, the tower has never been as well maintained as it is now. The current 20th structural paint campaign has been ongoing since 2019 and is designed to protect the tower from rust.

Earlier, Marianne magazine wrote about the presence of 884 defects, of which 68 concerned design changes that call into question its durability.
