Not exactly : to be really precise, the portal may be a man_made or
building feature and shouldn't get the location:transition tag.
The subway line way feature should (maybe this is was you thought about)
Nevertheless this example fits completely the current proposal

Just add location:transition=yes on the pole where the underground
cable gets connected to the overhead line.
The underground cable location changes to allow a connection overhead.

You can quick map utility wires and low voltage lines along road
according to this proposal of brycenesbitt (different tagging on
highway feature itself without any location:transition usage)

All the best
