Entrance C - New Automatic Number Plate Recognition System

Entrance C (Satigny) is now equipped with a latest-generation Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system and a fast-action road gate.


During the month of August, Entrance C will be continuously open from 7.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. (working days only). The security guards will open the gate as usual from 7.00 a.m. to 9.00 a.m. and from 5.00 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. For the rest of the working day (9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.) the gate will operate automatically.

Please observe the following points:

  •     Stop at the STOP sign on the ground
  •     Position yourself next to the card reader for optimal recognition
  •     Motorcyclists must use their CERN card
  •     Cyclists may not activate the gate and should use the bicycle turnstile
  •     Keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you
