Brussels has several unopened station-levels:
M1: stub-tunnels for branch to Tervuren between Stokkel and Kraineem, Stokkel station was alreadz built zears before it opened
M1 Parque/station with upper level for former M4
M1 Etangs noir with branch for line to Bizet
M1 Saint-Guidon-station with lower level for line from Midi to Anderlecht
M2 Simonis with stub-station for underground tram instead of existing terminus
M2 additional station Saincelette never opened between Ribaucourt and Yzer (I think)
M2 Naamse port prepared for corssing of line 4
M2 Louisa, extraordinary station with lower level of line 4 finished, tracks lying, tunnel is almost 600 m long until next station Stéphanie
M2 Midi underground station for tram-terminus
M3 Gare du Nord additional tracks for tram if M3 is beeing converted to metro
M3 Annessens lower level for line 4
M3 Lemonnier tunnels build for converting M3 into Metro with new tunnels to Midi
M3 Albert upper level prepared for underground tram-crossing
M6 Osseghem prepeartation and foundation for crossing of line to Bizet, maybe small tunnel

At Simonis special station on SNCB-network was built, but is not opend yet I think. Seems to be in future for the oncoming RER-project

Kind regards

Bratislava metro

Charleroi is probably one of the most famous examples, and I know they started building a metro in Bratislava, whish was cancelled after some initial work had been done. But are there any more, especially where you really can see the work?
Buildig came only to very early phase. There is only one tunnel, planed as connection to depot. Also smaller (50m?) testing tunnel was build on the left bank of the Danube river, but this was destroyed during construction of local shopping complex. Rest of metro preparations are holes across whole Petrzalka - to the north from finished tunnel.
