Because of the lack of rapid transit construction within this country during the last quarter century, little experience has been gained in the various aspects of surveying which are involved. This paper presents a correlation of facts, events, and figures relating to the surveying requirements for the construction of a new rapid transit line. The areas of planning, design, and construction are explored with the conclusion being drawn that surveying techniques have a marked impact on the overall project.
