How To Build A Train Station - Admin Costs $655M

Recommended Posts

A Trade Center Station, Years Late and $2 Billion Over Budget

The complicated design is only part of how it became one of the most expensive and delayed stations ever built. Administrative costs alone top $655 million.

Impressive admin costs for building a train station. I'm amazed we haven't got economic growth.

It's the US but it's the sort of inefficiency and waste (to say the very least) that is a main factor contributing to the falling productivity figures in the UK as well.
