GENERAL PROBLEMS IN DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION IN URBAN AREAS

The paper examines some of the existing policies and lack of policies on underground space as they pertain to rail rapid transit development projects in the United States. It discusses problems which have occurred during the development of both San Francisco's BART and the Washington, D.C. Metro project due to the conflict of interest in the use of such underground space. Several guidelines are offered for consideration and formulation of a national policy on the use of underground space.
