The Large Hadron-electron Collider (LHeC) is a proposed upgrade of the LHC at CERN. An Energy Recovery Linac in racetrack configuration will provide 60 GeV electrons to collide with the HL-LHC proton and ion beams and, eventually, with those from the HE-LHC and the FCC-hh. Such configurations will yield electron-proton (nucleus) collisions with per nucleon centre-of-mass energies 1.3-3.5 (0.8-2.2) TeV and luminosities $\sim 10^{34(33)}$ cm$^{-2}$s$^{-1}$. In this talk we will review the status of the accelerator, detector and physics studies.
