The Second Target station project has progressed rapidly throughout the year.

1. September 2006: First stages of the target station build. Rectangular viewports have been installed to allow neutron beams to travel out to instrument positions.

2. January 2007: Installing instrument beam shutters into the target station.

3. March 2007: Core steelwork of the target station nears completion. The final structure contains 5000 tons of steel and is 7 m high and 12 m in diameter.

4. Inserting locating pins into the proton beam tunnel floor to position steering and focusing magnets.

6. Steel and concrete walls over 1 m thick form the proton beam  tunnel, through which high energy protons will be fired at the target station. 

7. Over 100, 000 electrical cable terminations are required throughout the Second Target Station Project.

8. Assembling the beam stop at the end of the Wish instrument 

9. Installation of the TS-2 proton beamline extraction components in the ISIS synchrotron.
