About this event

The Government Pipeline and Storage System (GPSS) was constructed during the War for the storage and transport of petroleum fuels.  In 1945 it was largely decommissioned but the ‘Cold War’ led to its reuse and expansion.  It was later to be adapted to additionally meet the increased use of petroleum fuels for civil aviation, heating and motor transportation with instrumentation, controls, telemetry, and computer systems being increasingly utilized to run the system.
