  • Description

    A VAST CLEANING OPERATION DESIGNED TO MAKE PARIS ONE OF THE TIDIEST TOWNS IN EUROPE IS UNDERWAY. LAST WEEK THE FIRST EIGHT STREETS GOT THEIR FACELIFT.

    THIS PLAN TO CLEAN UP THE STREETS THEMSELVES FOLLOWS THE RENOVATION OF BUILDINGS ALONG THE MAIN THOROUGHFARES THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN COMPLETED.

    ONE OF THE FIRST STREETS WAS THE AVENUE DAUMESNIL. FOR TWO DAYS TRAFFIC WAS DIVERTED WHILE FIFTY MEN FROM THE CLEANSING DEPARTMENT AND THEIR SPECIAL WAGONS MOVED IN. NO DETAIL ESCAPED THEM.

    THE TREES WERE TRIMMED, PUBLIC BENCHES WERE PAINTED, LAMP-POSTS, PAVEMENTS AND THE ENTRIES TO THE METRO WERE MENDED AND CLEANED. OLD POSTERS WERE BURNT FROM THE WALLS.

    AND FINALLY THE WHOLE STREET WAS WASHED AND SPRAYED WITH DISINFECTANT.

    BY THE END OF THE YEAR FIFTY-SEVEN STREETS WILL HAVE BEEN THOROUGHLY TURNED OUT.
