Power lines laid

If you were commuting out of Blantyre heading towards Halfway today Monday 11 February 2019, you may have seen something unusual overhead.

Additional power cables were being strung out earlier today by some (brave) electrical workers, sending out “bogeys” underneath the wires! Working at height, between pylons, (presumably with power off!), it certainly was an unusual sight.

A resident who lives nearby told us the work is likely associated with providing electrical power to new housing estates in the Newton area.
