After more than three years of maintenance, consolidation and upgrades, in mid-2022 the LHC started its third major experimental phase (Run 3) which runs until the end of 2025.
Information on the most important work carried out in this extended Long Shutdown 2 can be found at the following link :

In addition, in the LHC Run 3 Section and in the Detectors Section, some of the most important improvements made during LS2 are discussed.
