    MYRRHA will be a research infrastructure focussed on the construction of a first prototype of an accelerator driven sub-critical nuclear reactor (ADS). The driver ac-celerator will deliver a 600 MeV, 4 mA Proton beam to the reactor core. The first phase called MINERVA aims for the construction of a 100 MeV, 4 mA proton linear accel-erator with a focus on reliability. Attached to this 100 MeV linear accelerator are a Proton Target Facility (PTF), which is essentially a high power Isotope Separation On-Line (ISOL) Facility, and a Full Power Facility (FPF) for fusion material research. This paper presents the status of the beam optic studies and overall layout of the Protons Target line towards the PTF, the Full Power line towards the FPF and the beam line towards an energy tuning beam dump.
