English translation: Long-term communication lines planning

Dutch term or phrase: lijnenplan
I am currently translating a telecommunications document, which makes several mentions of a "meerjaren lijnen plan".

Can I simply translate this as "long-term lines plan"? This sounds a little awkward, but I can't find a better way of translating it, and the dictionaries haven't been able to help me either.

Any suggestions welcome!

Explanation:
"Lijnen" presumably refers to the subject-matter of the text you are translating. If not, "lijnen" could have a variety of meanings depending on the context.
