.... collaudo statico favorevole relativo al tombino scatolare di superamento del Vallone .....

Hello everybody,
I am stuck on the words "tombino scatolare di superamento".
By googling it, I discovered that it is usually a pipe-shape construction in concrete passing along or under a river or a road.
Any idea how to translate it?

Thanks in advance

Typically embedded so as to be surrounded by soil, a culvert may be made from a pipe, reinforced concrete or other material.
