the building work on the Palacio Nacional and the Second Ring Road (American: Beltway)


Explanation:
'Palacio Nacional' is left untranslated in many English guidebooks. It's tricky to translate, because it doesn't function as a palace in the usual sense (it houses a museum), and the 'Nacional' relates to Catalan 'nationhood'. No such problems with 'cinturón'.
