Catalan term or phrase: semideprimit
This is from a section of an urban planning text dealing with the expansion of the Cerdà template out to the Besòs area.

"El fet que definitivament va fixar per tot aquest territori la pauta territorial imaginada per Cerdà va ser la prolongació de la Gran Via de l'Eixample.

En aquest sector es va obrir pas l'any 1967, construïda en forma de vial de gran capacitat, segregat i ***semideprimit***. S'entenia com el capçal de la primera autopista que s'obria a Espanya i reconeixia implícitament que el territori de l'Eixample sobre el riu Besòs no podria ser resolt com a continuació literal d'aquell, ni en les formes d'ocupació de les illes ni en l'enteniment de la secció transversal de la via de circulació."

Does it mean the road was slightly sunken? There is an aerial photo accompanying the text, which does not seem to confirm that hypothesis. But then it is difficult to gauge ground depth from several hundred feet in the air.

in a shallow cutting
Explanation:
I've taken this ugly road many times. In fact, I entered the city for the very first time on it, in 1976. Quite a shock. After Plaça de les Glòries it runs in a shallow cutting, now fitted with noise-reducing panelling designed by Marialles and Tagliabue. Check it out on google stret view.

That word forced me to do a major revision of that section. Thank you so much. Why didn't it occur to me? Been away too long?
