The Secret Underground Pipeline Across Britain

  • Published on: 31 August 2015
  • - - On a windy day in Gloucestershire, I find one of the few parts of the once top-secret GPSS aviation fuel pipeline (now called CLH-PS after privatisation) that pokes above ground, and explore the balance between secrecy and safety.

    American here, watching that really does make Britian look tiny, 1500 miles is what average Americans will drive in under 2 months, it's what an over the road trucker here (well, anywhere really) can cover in 3 days

    I'm positive this is what I used to see crossing a river near Troon in Ayrshire when I used the train a lot. Would make sense with Prestwick airport nearby.

    Whilst working for the government (DCLG), I used to receive the business rate payment for these pipelines. LA’s couldn’t really collect the rates because the pipes cross too many LA’s and it was too complex to go down that route

    This isnt true, i work for a well know utility construction company and we have to check all our excavations at planning to make sure there not within the ZOI of various pipelines including the fuels pipelines. This infomation is available for obvious reasons. Yes we've made mistakes and yes people have turned up when we've been digging close by.

    These are National Fuel lines, its not just one type of fuel sent through them. Different grades are pumped through in "packets". The fuel that is mixed from the end of one grade to the start of the next is held in separate tanks and blended to fuels that can absorb it. Permission is required to dig anywhere near these lines & you must follow instructions given. There are trace wires over the top of some of these pipes so if you dig through / cut them they send an alarm and the resistance reading will pinpoint the location. These lines are still surveyed by air regularly. As others have said im not quite sure how they know but there is a high chance of a visit should you dig near one of these lines without getting permission. It could be the regual surveying or i do wonder if there was some sort of vibration monitor? The British are the best at national secrets and the German's and Russians used to know where to pinpoint their reconnaissance due to the blank spaces on British maps 🙈

    it's not s secret if everybody knows about itif the government acknowledged that or not doesn't matternot confirming anything doesn't achieve much if anything at all

    Why don’t you talk about the underground tunnels all over the world? Cause you’re what they call a gatekeeper

    The sad thing is that if you can buy a map that the gov puts out about it what is the difference if it's secret or not. 50 people sit down and buy one then publish a copy... And then again someone who REALLY wants to damage it will buy the map and use that to do it.
