Dilly upgrade slowed by Boris Island?

The Piccadilly Line upgrade completion is to be delayed, amid suggestions the Mayor of London is “dragging his heels” as he favours an estuary airport over Heathrow.

The Hounslow Chronicle reports that, following a Transport for London announcement that the train and signalling improvements originally planned for completion in 2014 will not now finish until 2019 at the earliest, suggestions have been made that the upgrade is being delayed to advantage the case of an Estuary Airport replacing Heathrow.
