Building railway stations like the Oculus in New York or the railway station Liège-Guillemins take several years until they are finishes.
This picture is an impression of the project for the Central Sunway in San Francisco. The work started in 2012. The picture is taken July 2014. The subway will be opened in 2018.
The POV is in the Market street looking into the Stockton Street. It is a pity you can’t hear the noise of all the machines.

The Central Subway is an extension of the Muni Metro light rail system under construction in San Francisco, California, from the Caltrain commuter rail depot at 4th and King streets to Chinatown, with stops in South of Market (SoMa) and Union Square.
The subway is the second phase of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency's Third Street Light Rail Project. The first phase opened to the public as the T Third Line in 2007. The Central Subway is expected to open to the public in 2018. With the addition of the Central Subway, the T Third Line is projected to become the most heavily ridden line in the Muni Metro system by 2030.
Ground was broken for the Central Subway on February 9, 2010. As of February 2014, both tunnel boring machines (TBMs) had passed under Market Street and were tunnelling under Stockton Street toward Chinatown.
