English translation:1) routing intersections 2) common routing 3) interfaces
Explanation:
I take it we are talking about things like cable runs, water pipes, gas pipes, etc. and places where they "intersect".

However, since I imagine concertation between different contractors might be required when their utilities run parallel to each other as well (either superimposed on wall fixings, or laid in a common trench), maybe "common routing" would be better.

However (bis), given that you have "interfaces" in the title, maybe "interfaces" would be better still ...

More context?

Bravo, Bourth! In this computer age, I had forgotten about the original meaning of "interface" (and I do a lot of mechanical engineering translations!). It is "interface" in this context, but thanks for all the other suggestions for other contexts!
