Hardy workers have built and maintained New York’s subway lines for more than 150 years, enduring hazardous conditions 800ft below the street. This programme follows the new generation of ‘Sandhogs’ - two of them British - who risk their lives blasting through rock and rubble to create two new lines commissioned by the city.

With unprecedented access, Tunellers takes the viewer inside the unseen and unsung world of the guys who, for over a century, have dug New York’s underground infrastructure.

Hundreds of feet below one of the world’s most famous cities, a different breed of men dig and blast their way through solid rock. These urban miners create the tunnels that ensure the survival of the city above.

The Tunnellers begin construction on the first new subway tunnel expansion in over 20 years. Working in the heart of downtown Manhattan, Walking Boss Martin Hostetter and Foreman Ryan McGinty lead a gang of Tunnellers through…

At the Croton Filtration Plant in the Bronx, the Tunnellers (aka Sandhogs) continue to mine deep beneath the city. After “punching through” to the 118-year old New Croton Aqueduct tunnel, Repete and his crew prepare for the project’s next step…

As the tunnel-boring machine cuts through Croton’s upper tunnel, morale is at an all time low. Temporary Foreman Anthony Aviles’ aggressive leadership style has forced Walking Boss Morgan Curran to monitor the situation closely…

On Manhattan’s west side, a tunnel said to be the largest public works construction project in the history of the western hemisphere nears completion: New York City’s Water Tunnel #3. After 38 years, the Tunellers prepare for the final blasts…

Morgan and the gang in the Croton Filtration site’s upper tunnel begin a critical turn with the mole. As they steadily close in on their goal of mining 3745 feet, the gang has little margin for error.

At the Croton Filtration Plant in the Bronx, New York, Walking Boss Morgan Curran and his gang work to complete the new tunnel’s connection to the 118-year old New Croton Aqueduct. As the concrete pour begins, signalling the winding down…

At East Side Access, a rock face loaded with dynamite is primed for a blast that will clear a crossover tunnel space for the Roadheader. At the last second, a meltdown at Grand Central Terminal causes the blast to be delayed…

The moment of truth has arrived for the Tunnellers using the Roadheader at East Side Access. But before it can do battle against Manhattan’s diamond-hard subterranean rock, near-disaster strikes.

On the #7 Subway line extension project, Walking Boss Martin Hostetter and Foreman Ryan McGinty ready their gang for an important two weeks. They are preparing the final few blasts to complete the giant subterranean cavern.

Walking Boss Morgan Curran and his gang of Tunnellers finish prepping the mole for its third and final tunnel. With work picking up again Morgan rehires Elom, Mikey Bones and Romo, returning his old gang to full strength.
