Italian term or phrase: pontile di presa e sollevamento
Progetto esecutivo del pontile di presa e sollevamento dal fiume XXXX dell'acquedotto di YYYY.

[WhereX XXXX is the name of a river and YYYY is the name of the aqueduct].

I get the general sense but am unsure of the correct EN terminology for 'pontile di presa e sollevamento'.
