  CERN civil engineers are studying the feasibility of future ring colliders to complement the LHC. Infrastructure works typically represent one third of the cost of major physics projects, so it's critical that the construction costs are well understood from the conceptual stage. This poster presents the first results of the feasibility studies for two potential ring colliders at CERN: the racetrack shaped Linac-Ring LHeC and an 80km circular tunnel to house the High Energy LHC (SHE-LHC) and the TLEP. Some of the key civil engineering challenges faced in such large scale projects are presented with particular emphasis on geology, design and risk.

  In preparation for a future Large Hadron electron Collider (LHeC) at CERN, an ERL test facility is foreseen as a test bed for SRF development, cryogenics, and advanced beam instrumentation, as well as for studies of ERL-specific beam dynamics. The CERN ERL test facility would comprise two linacs, each consisting of 4 superconducting 5-cell cavities at 802 MHz, and two return arcs on either side. With an RF voltage of 75 MeV per linac a final electron energy of about 300 MeV is reached. The average beam current should be above 6 mA to explore the parameter range of the future LHeC. In this paper we present a preliminary optics layout.

  The LHeC is designed to collide a new 60 GeV energy electron beam, from a 3-pass ERL, with the 7 TeV energy LHC proton beam. At the present target ep luminosity of 1033cm-2s-1, the LHeC would produce a few 1000 Higgs bosons per year, allowing for precision coupling measurements, especially of the H –> b bbar decay in charged current deep inelastic scattering (ep –> nu H X). With a significant increase of the luminosity, rarer channels become accessible, as the charm decay. Here such an increase, to the level of 1034cm-2s-1 or even beyond, is considered from a combination of improvements, namely with a smaller proton beam emittance, with a further reduction of the proton IP beta function, an increase of the proton bunch intensity and with doubling the lepton beam current, compared to the canonical values assumed in the CDR.
