before reaching the KP/beyond the KP
Explanation:
PK = punto kilométrico = kilometre point/marker

Hi! I'm translating a text about Civil Engineering esp. Roads and I don't know the translation for P.K (in Spanish: punto kilometrico) that referers to the different kilometric points measured with numbers in a road. Could I say K.P (kilometric point)?

"Initially, transportation of natural gas for the liquefaction plant will be through the existing Pipeline Transportation System (PTS) up to kilometer post (kp) 211. From this point, a 408 km long pipeline will be constructed and operated by XXXX provide the required natural gas to the plant"

I understand 'a menys' and 'a més' to mean 'less than (before reaching)' and 'more than (beyond)'.
