overhead lines
Explanation:
Hola. Seen "air lines" too. "High tension power lines" would be the other sentence...assuming you have two different sentences to be translated. Link 1 for overhead lines": "The Island Features... we have had sufficient expertise in the design construction and maintenance of electric overhead lines up to 132kV.". Link 2 for "high tension power lines": "[TowerTalk] high-tension lines
... places to show me. One of them, a very nicely > priced repossession, has some high-tension
power lines about 150 yards > behind the house." "Electric power lines" only pop up a few times for some reason. Hundreds more under http://www.google.com/search?q="high tension power lines "&h...
Good luck, cheers :-)

high-tension transmission lines


Explanation:
Although nearly all electrical transmission lines are aerial (as opposed to buried, which is aesthetically more pleasing but harder to maintain), this phrase probably refers to the lines carrying 100,000+ volts, mounted around 60 ft/20m or more above the ground.
