Automatic update in 00:
main thoroughfare; main road
Explanation: I had been thinking of asking this question myself sometime, so here's an attempt at also answering my own question:
Duden (see below) gives: (besonders im Verkehrswesen:) Hauptverkehrslinie, -straße (in einer Großstadt): "Porschestraße heißt die Magistrale Wolfsburgs."
For "Hauptverkehrslinie" Muret-Sanders (see below) gives "main thoroughfare"/"main road".
However, as the context is architecture, I may of course be on the wrong track!
