I have just "PM di Ortona" in reference to railways. Can this be Posto Manovra? if so what's the translation?

I think that \"pubblico ministero\" is the most suitable

Hi Ziad..This is about a contract work for a railway station. I do not believe that it can be a Public Prosecutor. But it has to do with a reilway station. thanks for your trying..

Project Manager


Explanation:
you came up with a more ingenious one with Posto Manovra....:-)

I was thinking that since this is for civil eng. it might mean the project manager? at times I have seen it used in Italian

Hi there, I found \"Posto di movimento\" although it sounds similar to \"manovra\"

\"...raddoppio della tratta ferroviaria Fabriano - Posto di Movimento 228 (PM-228) della linea Orte - Falconara\" (PA-...\"

Hi esoft.. I do not believe it is a Project manager because there is already a works' manager but it talks about a work to be done at the "PM of Ortona" so I thought it would probably mean "Posto di Manovra della stazione di Ortona"..
