  A massive improvement program of the LHC injector chain is presently being conducted under the LIU project. For the proton chain, this includes the replacement of Linac2 with Linac4 as well as all necessary upgrades to the Proton Synchrotron Booster (PSB), the Proton Synchrotron (PS) and Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS), aimed at producing beams with the challenging High Luminosity LHC (HL-LHC) parameters. Regarding the heavy ions, plans to improve the performance of Linac3 and the Low Energy Ion Ring (LEIR) are also pursued under the general LIU program. The full LHC injection chain returned to operation after Long Shutdown 1, with extended beam studies taking place in Run 2. A general project Cost and Schedule Review also took place in March 2015, and several dedicated LIU project reviews were held to address issues awaiting pending decisions. In view of these developments, 2014 and 2015 have been key years to define a number of important aspects of the final LIU path. This paper will describe the reviewed LIU roadmap and revised performance objectives of the main upgrades, including the work status and outlook in terms of the required installation and commissioning stages.

  The High Intensity and Energy ISOLDE project (HIE-ISOLDE)* is a major upgrade of the ISOLDE facility at CERN. The energy range of the post-accelerator will be extended from 2.85 MeV/u to 9.3 MeV/u for beams with A/q = 4.5 (and to 14.3 MeV/u for A/q = 2.5) once all the cryomodules of the superconducting accelerator are in place. The project has been divided into different phases, the first of which (phase 1a) finished in October 2015 after the hardware and beam commissioning were completed**. The physics campaign followed with the delivery of both radioactive and stable beams to two different experimental stations. The characteristics of the beams (energies, intensities, time structure and beam contaminants) and the plans for the next experimental campaign will be discussed in this paper.

  Phase 1a of the High Intensity and Energy ISOLDE (HIE-ISOLDE) project* was completed in 2015. The first cryomodule and two High Energy Beam Transfer lines (HEBT) were installed. In addition, many of the subsystems of the normal conducting part of the post-accelerator (REX) were renovated or refurbished. Following the hardware commissioning of the different system** and, in preparation for the start of the physics program, many tests and measurements were conducted as part of the beam commissioning program. The results of these tests and the plan for the next beam commissioning campaign are discussed in this paper.
