Watch 1,200 Japanese workers turn a railway line into a subway line overnight
Subway construction can take years, if not decades. So the fact that in 2013, a group of 1,200 Japanese workers turned an above-ground train line into a subway line in one single night is nothing short of a miracle.
The construction took place on March 15, 2013 at the Shibuya Station in Tokyo, with the goal of building a train section that would connect with Daikanyama Station. The 1,200 employees were deployed immediately following the station's last train at 1:00 am. And by 5:00 am the next morning, Shibuya Station was ready to go. Check out the video of the insanely efficient construction below:
It's particularly impressive when you consider that if the same construction happened New York City, it would probably take them probably around 150 years.
