Spanish term or phrase: via de limitación - Vial VDL
Context: "Proyecto de Urbanizacion Refundido Camino Corral Del Batlle Y Apertura Vial VDL en Sagunto (Valencia)". Iassume that VDL stands for "via de limitación", but I do not know the translation of this.

Explanation:
As I said in the discussion, VDL here seems to stand for "Vial de Delimitación Longitudinal". There is one newspaper that identifies this acronym as "vial de limitación":

"Las largas colas que sufren los miles de turistas que acu­den cada verano a las playas de Canet d’En Berenguer y Al­mardà, en Sagunto, ya no se van a volver a repetir este año. Y es que ambos Ayuntamien­tos han inaugurado las mejo­ras de acceso al Vial de Limi­tación (VDL) que une a estas dos poblaciones."
http://www.elperiodicodeaqui.com/noticias/canet-y-sagunto-me...

But I think they've just got it wrong; official documents identify it as "vial de delimitación longitudinal":

"El VDL (Vial de Delimitación Longitudinal) de Almardá se abrirá al público esta misma tarde"
http://www.morvedre.info/urbanisme/esta-tarde-se-ha-abierto-...

"y el VDL (Vial de Delimitación Longitudinal) de Almardà y la obra del Camí del Batle, obras de las que se encargará Rober-Alcisa"
http://www.morvedre.info/ciutat/sagunto-adjudica-las-once-ob...

"VIAL DE DELIMITACION LONGITUDINAL (V.D.L.), 2ª FASE, EN LA PLAYA DE ALMARDA.
El Pleno de la Corporación Municipal, en sesión celebrada el día 25 de Septiembre de 1990, aprobó inicialmente el proyecto de Iluminación del Vial de Delimitación Longitudinal (V.D.L.), 2ª Fase, en la playa de Almardá"
http://www.aytosagunto.es/es-es/ayuntamiento/gobierno-ciudad...

I have not found any definition of this term in Spanish. I presume that "vial de delimitación" implies "boundary road". I can't think what else this term could mean.

If it is "delimitación" rather than "limitación" (as it seems to be), I think it's more likely to refer to a road that delimits something, ie. marks the outer limit of it, which is why I suggested "boundary". "Limitación" would be more compatible with weight restriction, I would have thought.

Here's another example of "vial de delimitación", which seems to me to mean "boundary road":

"Sección del vial de delimitación norte del Sector"

Thank you, Charles.
Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi, Charles. Regarding "boundary road", could it also mean restricted road? For example, a weight restricted road.

Asker: Yes, I think you are right that it is a boundary rather than a restriction. Thanks, Charles.
