German term or phrase: Maschinenvortrieb
Sonderfall Maschinenvortrieb
Wenn im Zuge einer 2-streifigen Richtungsfahrbahn eine Tunnelstrecke in maschineller Bauweise im Lockergestein erstellt werden soll, kann als Alternative zum Querschnitt 26 t auch der Sonderquerschnitt 26 Tr zum Einsatz kommen. In der Regel ist der Querschnitt 26 Tr dann mit niedrigeren Baukosten verbunden, wenn beim Querschnitt 261 mindestens 2 Pannenbuchten je Fahrtrichtung angeordnet werden sollten.

This is a section in a text on selecting road tunnel cross sections.

Any help is appreciated.
