The flagpole car park has been permanently closed since work on the Esplanade des Particules started in April 2017.
Options for parking near CERN's Reception area are therefore limited, especially for the many people visiting the permanent exhibitions, taking guided tours and attending public events in the Globe, who have no alternative but to use the Globe car park.
Over the last few weeks, we have noticed an increase in the number of people using the Globe car park as a long-stay car park – a use that is unacceptable but unfortunately not new.
As a reminder, members of the personnel undertaking duty travel lasting more than five consecutive working days can obtain authorisation for the long-term parking of their private vehicle in one of the three car parks reserved for this purpose (see the procedure in the Admin e-Guide). The Globe car park is not one of those three car parks and therefore must not, under any circumstances, be used for long stays.
CERN kindly asks the users of the Globe car park to respect these rules.
