continuous box section


Explanation:
My guess is that this may be a description of a type of railway tunnel. By deduction:

CBTC = Communications-based train control
1435 mm (calibro standard) = standard gauge i.e. the spacing between the inner faces of the rails
scatolare = cut-and-cover excavation method to form a rectangular box section- see link: https://tinyurl.com/y4pdykec

corrente = continuous in this context- But I'm guessing, given the lack of any meaningful context

Explanation:
scatolare mostly applies to low voltage switches, as opposed to free standing high voltage ones. But here it sees to apply the shape of the "pipes" for the electric cabling, etc.
