On the Pont des Arts in Paris, the controversial “love padlocks” – signed and locked by lovers onto the bridge’s metal grids – have been replaced by street art.

Paris authorities last week removed 45 tons of padlocks weighing on the bridge’s structure.

To appease romantics, authorities commissioned a street art exhibit on the theme of love. But plain plexiglass panels are set to take over permanently later this year.
