Default Piccadilly line extension to Terminal 5/Heathrow Express extension to T5

Do we know when construction work is due to start on the Piccadilly
extension to Terminal 5 as I understand that tunneling work was due to
be finished by next year. I also understand that Terminal 4 would be
temporaily closed during the construction period.

Likwise does any news exist on the Heathrow Express extension.

Tunnelling is well under way and I believe the station box is all but
finished.

Plans are advanced for the closure of the T4 loop to allow the T5
extension to be connected. I think the latest plan is around December.
I'll try and confirm today at work, but I think we're looking at about a
two year closure.

Will the station be in the JLE style with platform doors or will it be
like T123 & Hatton Cross?

Absolutely no idea, we've not been given that detail.

I doubt there will be PEDs as Jubilee drivers had to receive special
training for theirs - there's not much point having to train all
Piccadilly drivers to do this for just one station. There may be some
technical issues too but I'm not sure about those.

Has there been a consensus regarding how it will be rendered on the map yet?

If one loop goes HX-T4-T123-HX and the other goes HX-T123-T5-HX, then the
diagram will need to resemble a pair of testicles at the end of the line,
no?

T5 will not be on a loop. Some trains will go HX-T4-T123-HX as now and the
others will go HX-T123-T5(reverse)-T123-HX

I will thank you not to do that again. I laughed so hard I got water all
over my keyboard. I'm very cross with you right now.

T5 will not be on a loop. Some trains will go HX-T4-T123-HX as now and the
others will go HX-T123-T5(reverse)-T123-HX



So how will that work with the two platforms at T123? Will one be used
exclusively for London-bound trains that have gone round the loop, and the
other for bi-directional trains on a single track extension to T5?

Or will it be one platform be for T5 only, and the other for both sets of
London-bound trains? (which would make more sense to the traveller, but be
logistically more difficult to implement, and result in a bizarre station
where twice as many trains went in one direction as t'other.)
