Rapid transit systems must be constructed in a hostile environment. The space required for construction is already crowded. Hinderance of traffic must be avoided or minimized. Existing utility systems and adjacent structures must be maintained and remain useful during construction and must be restored to as good as, or better than, original condition upon completion. Care must be exercised to minimize imitation or harm to the public. All these factors cost extra expense and time, but the effect may be lessened by preparatory work, by vigorous public relations, by working closely with governing officials, and by timely acquisiton of real estate.
