Connection to TI_8 completed

The CNGS excavation works very nearly reached completion on 18 December 2002, when the connection of the access gallery TZ80 (to the CNGS hadron stop area) with the TI_8 transfer line tunnel was made.

There are now just two small sections to be excavated: first, some 15 metres of alcove parallel to TI_8 (needed for cooling and ventilation equipment), then a few metres at the upstream end of the proton beam tunnel TT41 (to connect it to the existing TJ8 cavern, which in turn links to the SPS extraction region).
