London high voltage cables decommissioned, North Acton
London high voltage cables decommissioned, North Acton
The Willesden to Wimbledon high voltage oil-insulated cables ran under here. Maintenance work on the joint bay in 2007 is shown in photo TQ2081 : Power cable joint bay. The cables have been replaced by ones in deeper tunnels; the one from Willesden to Wimbledon runs via Kensal Green and does not go under here. The darker patches of tarmac now are where there were cabinets on the pavement, and recently a deep pit in the roadway through which the oil was extracted.
