This poles supports two lines with two strands of suspensions instead of the usual one strand one line. The arch in the support arms is not found on single line towers.

comment received; The dual conductors are referred to as 'bundled' and to allow that much more amperage (and therefore, more power) to be pushed down the line. This is equivalent of early day practice of building a second parallel line.
