I originally thought this was a typo for 'utskytning' as the term 'launching nose' is used in bridge construction, but 'utskyvning' appears throughout the text, but isn't in any of my resources, but a few hits can be found on Google.

Explanation:
The description given in SVV handbook V460 matches up with the description given in this document:
http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/archive/NotesDocs/20-07...

I came across it while searching for "temporary cantilever nose", but launching nose returns a lot of good results, so seems to be a common term
