Why is this BART station taking so long to build? They are almost done with the Oracle building that started about the same time, yet is 10 times as big as the BART station.

Not long ago I played golf with an Iron Worker from out of state that's working on the project and he said the beams delivered for the overpass were, in his words, "wrong and wouldn't fit" due to engineering. Seems they were waiting for new beams to be delivered and he didn't have anything to do but play golf... Said he was still on the payroll while waiting...
That's probably not why the project isn't finished but I thought it was interesting...

that must be nice, huh jerry? i wish i could not work and make money.who pays for this again?............oh yea our taxes have been paying for this for almost 15 years. i like to take bart to the city, to games, ect. but is it worth it. they can't complete a job they've been collecting money on for years. they are raising rates. and making it very easy to go in my back yard, ( yes muirwood/ highland oaks), and break into my car with and easy escape route. people have to be overjoyed by this. worsening our community and costing us (over the years) tons of money. thanks bart!!
