Tech/Engineering - Energy / Power Generation / power generation
Italian term or phrase: direttrice
"ove sarà realizzato un nuovo stallo e traslati i raccordi alla direttrice Villanova-Foggia.."

Main power line - something ike that, is there a sector specific term?

(railway) line
Explanation:
I think that they talk about a railway line, that is the term we use in Italian to indicate a line (Villanova and Foggia are Italian towns). If it is more technical (you can judge), it is probably line.

for Bistefano: I cannot change my answer, so I would like to precise that my answer is (railway) line and not railway line. Anyway in Italian when you talk about a direttrice the most of the time you refer to a railway route / line or a an aircraft route.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  bistefano: Nope, the italian term "direttrice" is not related NECESSARILY NOR HERE to rails, but to geographical directions of infrastructures (of whatever kind) (Here electricity distribution lines)

  -> sure? Before putting a "disagree" ceck well outside of your knowledge! http://www.italferr.it/progetti_italia/attivazioni.asp

neutral  Alexander Chisholm: could they be talking about a power line - its a doc relating to a power station and its auxiliary activities (gas pipelines, power lines etc.)- - Sandy
13 hrs
  -> ok Alexander and ok Stefano, the only thing is that I have not answered railway line, but (railway) line. So my answer is rather line. I was not sure they were talking about a railway line!
