You could say a "perpendicular street" too and it would be understandable, but I'd go for the "cross street" option.

tarmac/asphalt-covered street running perpendicular to the road


Explanation:
The street is running perpendicular to the Ruta (road). We would commonly say tarmaced rather than asphalted in the UK.
So,

"You enter the facility/plant by means of a tarmac-covered street running perpendicular to the (main)road"
