After the war, Lebesby became an important line test-point, where the lines were tested for faults. In 1945 a small building was put up near the line, where the telegraph was placed and where line tests were performed.
Towards the end of the 1950s, the station manager built a new house by the church in the centre of Lebesby. As this location was approx. three kilometres away from the original station, a costly rebuild was done simultaneously to bring all the lines in a loop up to the new house, and thus a new exchange was established here. With this, it was hoped that line tests could be executed quicker and that the repairs could be improved on.
This junction, which has been given a protection order, is a unique three-sided junction with a four-way course leading off in three directions. It was erected at the end of the 50s. 30 poles have been preserved around the junction, but this number will be cut somewhat during 2017/18.
About the object
I Lebesby, Finnmark, er det bevart et unikt knutepunkt for linjekursen. Det er et trekantet knutepunkt med 4-piggs kurs i tre retninger, montert i slutten av 1950-årene. Ca 30 stolper er beholdt rundt krysset.
Lebesby var etter andre verdenskrig et viktig linjemålepunkt hvor linjene ble målt for feil. I 1945 ble det satt opp en brakke ved linjen hvor telegrafen var plassert og linjemålingen ved feil ble foretatt. I slutten av 1950- årene bygde stasjonsholderen nytt hus ved kirken i Lebesby sentrum. Huset lå ca 3 km lenger unna. Det ble samtidig vedtatt en kostbar ombygging hvor alle linjene ble lagt i sløyfe fram til det nye huset, der den nye sentralen ble etablert. Hensikten var å gjøre linjemålingene hurtigere og forbedre feilrettingene.
