1. LAVORI SVOLTI

Questa breve nota illustra le risultanze di due TSP eseguiti all’Inlet.
In particolare i lavori si sono svolti con la seguente croconologia:
§ In data 11-12 2006 è stato eseguito il TSP n° 5 alla progressiva 4+196, eseguito secondo gli standar;
§ In data 22-02-2007 è stato eseguito il TSP n° 6 alla progressiva 4+163. Questo TSP è stato eseguito all’interno del “exploratory adit” con interdistanza geofonica pari a 0,5 m .

English translation:Chainage
Explanation:
It is the surveying term for the distance along a route. In this case the distance along a tunnel. The distance was originally measured using a chain (22 yards once upon a time, I think) hence the term. Progressive 4+563 is 4 kilometres 563 metres from the starting point of the route or "alignment" tracciata.

You can't say progressive. Means nothing intelligible. You must use chainage.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks alot Jim! But is chainage the answer or can you also say progressive?

Asker: so does the sentence translate as :theTSP n° 5 was carried out AT THE CHAINAGE 4+ 196?

agree  gvag: 100%. Note on usage: ... TSP n° 5 was carried out AT CHAINAGE 4+196 .... (rather than at THE chainage)
