Metro Tunnel early works at South Kensington

To make room for the western Metro Tunnel portal beside the Sunbury line at South Kensington, freight sidings at North Dynon were relocated to the south, which made room for the relocation of 220 kV high voltage transmission lines from the future rail corridor.
