Swedish term or phrase: intunnling
A term relating to the construction of railway lines.
Possibly synonymous with överdäckning.

Från Frösundaleden till Huvudstagatan förläggs spåren i ett tunnelrör med fyra spår, i en så kallad intunnling som till stor del är förlagd ovan befintlig mark.

Intunnlingen i Solna och tunnelförläggningen i Sundbyberg utgör viktiga förutsättningar för utveckling av nya bostadsområden och verksamheter i anslutning till järnvägen som idag utgör en kraftig barriär med stor miljöpåverkan i de båda kommunerna.

agree  Paul Armitage: From my experience in tunnelling and civil engineering, I think Deane's cut-and-cover is correct. Edit: just realised that cut-and-cover is really the method, and is OK here, but 'open cut' might be better in the context.
