    I have arrive home from Edinburgh airport arrive in Heathrow. It is my first time to go over the new Heathrow flyover by Heathrow Connet to the slow line before Hayes & Harlington. I was expect though it was finish but I am not sure if it is because the second new bridge that link to the fast line for Express no track on it yet or it my Rail Atlas 13th edition book mistake diagram?

    There are a series of diagrams of each stage of the construction of the Stockley Flyover in this IanVisits article.

    Each major stage of work can only happen during the Christmas blockade. Christmas 2014 saw the first stage connected, meaning that all Heathrow Connect trains run over the new flyover connected to the Up Relief. The blockade this Christmas will see the next part of the flyover built, providing the floor for the tracks that will be installed at Christmas 2016, at which point the junction will be finished and there will be no conflicting movements.
