Start of work at ISR construction site



Geneva, Switzerland

Not long after the signing of the agreements leasing the new site in France to CERN (CERN COURIER, vol. 5, p. 147, Oct. 1965), work began on the long job of installing the 2.6-km-Iong fence needed to enclose the area and make it inaccessible from the French side of the frontier. The photos shows some of the clearance necessary on the Southern corner of the new territory, near the junction with the existing area, where a new site road will be constructed.
