facepalm.


You're quite right, of course, but I suppose they don't regard the
additional Heathrow station as an extension.


It's approx 2km, so rather more than just a new station.

Topographically it's almost identical to the Battersea Branch (~3.5km)
but maybe the writer thought it was like T4?


T4 involved 6.1km of new single-track tunnel.
