The photo below captures a highly complex operation in a single image. Along the E17 in Kruisem, electricity wires are being transferred from the smaller temporary pylon (hidden behind the large pylon) to the new permanent pylon (the large structure in the foreground). The crossarms on the right-hand side of the new pylon are still missing, but will be installed in the coming weeks. The aerial platforms (cranes) are there as a precaution, to prevent the electric wires from sagging too much.
