Subway stories

Transport - British consultants are helping New York's Mass Transit Authority push through one of the world's biggest construction projects. Andrew Bolton reports from Manhattan.

New York's Subway system is gearing up for a massive 20 year transformation this year.

Work is due to start on a new $16bn (£8.4bn) line which will eventually run the length of Second Avenue. Meanwhile the interchange at Fulton Street on Manhattan's southern tip is to undergo a technically complex £395M transformation in recognition of its growing importance as a transport hub.

NCE visited New York to talk to the engineers who will deliver this and another £4.5bn of Subway works in the decades to come.
