CPL 42 pylons.jpg
Forty-two pylons planted 25 years ago for A2 to bridge CMK.
hpim1276.jpg
The 42 pylons are arranged in 7 rows, each of 6 pylons. Planted 25 years ago, the pylons show numerous cracks, and the iron bars at the top are corroded under their plastic sheaths.
hpim1268.jpg
Any two rows of pylons are some 25m apart. With six pylons in a row, the motorway would be 30m wide.
hpim1270.jpg
View westwards, alongside planned motorway. Total length of the 'flyover': 7*25m plus the two ends makes 200m.
