Rekawinkel tunnel and Kleine Dürreberg tunnel

A tunnel bore with fully automated guidance was used for the first time in the reconstruction of a railway tunnel. Special software developed by Amberg was used alongside this. Guidance of the tunnel bore was accurate to 2–3 mm. In the event of clearance breaches, corrections for the tamping machine were generated using a track scanning wagon.
