 Italian term or phrase: in asse Nelle verifiche, ovviamente, si è esaminata separatamente la percorribilità delle varie curve presenti lungo il tracciato, valutando per ciascuna di esse i raggi di curvatura ___in asse___ e la larghezza apparente da considerare secondo il criterio esposto al punto precedente. I'm considering two possibilities: - "along the route" (of the river) - "perpendicular to the axis" (of the river)

 longitudinal / along the alignment Explanation:High only, because I don't have a lot of context. "the longitudinal radii of curvature" "the radii of curvature along the alignment" If it is a river, then alignment won't do. The alignment is the centre line of a route for a road or a railway or whatever as plotted by a surveyor.
