The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has released new video of workers' progress on the extension of the 7 subway line on Manhattan's West Side.

The 7 line is being extended 34th Street and 11th Avenue in Midtown, where it will connect to the Hudson Yards.

The agency says work is well underway on two ventilation buildings and the upper and lower mezzanines are taking shape.

The station will feature the system's first ever incline elevator, which will transport New Yorkers between the upper and lower levels.

The new station is expected to open in June 2014 and MTA officials expects it to be the most heavily used station by 2020.
