Sections of London's Underground are a century old, and continuous reconstruction and improvement has been in progress for the last 50 years. LT's former Chief Civil Engineer gives a fascinating account of how this updating has been carried out while keeping traffic moving. While of great interest to the general reader, the specialist will find it a useful key to a complicated subject which, with its copious references, will lead him to more detailed accounts of unusual and difficult tasks faced in urban railway building. The subjects range from the enlargement of the City & South London tube tunnels in the 1920s to the very recent reconstruction of Moorgate station.
