The ITER construction site seen from the temporary visitors' centre that will open this September.
The levelling of the ITER site is making progress — though a little more slowly than expected due to the stronger-than-expected sub-surface rock structure. Nevertheless, the first 1 million cubic meters of earth has been moved. Also, the five gates giving access to the ITER site are in place, the area for the contractors is almost completed and the work on the new temporary offices (JWS-2) is also progressing. It looks as if the first staff will be able to move into their offices later in October this year.
