Despite opposition from en- the highway project will sweep away many riverside walks adored by Paris fishermen and young lovers alike. The first put forward two years ago but hotly con- tested by left-wing coun- envisages a highway along the entire Left Bank past the picturesque quais and the majestic Notre Dame Cathedral.

It will have to go to make way for the expressway. A new bridge has been prom- ised but there is little likeli- hood that so fond of the old iron structure built in will lavish affection on the shiny new replacement.
