I know 'it's only 164 metres', but this is going to extend the centrelines and therefore the CTA and make it even more likely to accidently infringe with the current squeeze on airspace, isn't it?
Pin out, throw grenade, wait for the bang.
Is the '164m' a full width extension or a reduced width starter extension?
The starter extension on 06 at Farnborough is about that length but only 150m are allowed to be 'declared' because it's less than the full 45m width with a turning circle.
In any case, 164m isn't going to cause either runway threshold to be moved but the paved length will be in excess of the necessary 1850m and hence eligible for an increase in the size of the ATZ to 2.5nm but an increase in the size of the CTR is not justified.
So apart from the LDA on runway 20 which can't be moved north due to the railway works, all other declared distances could increase by 164m IF the extension is full width; if not full width it can't be included in the LDA, TORA or ASDA for 02 but it can be included in the TORA, ASDA and TODA for 20
Pity they're not spending the money on an ILS on 02 instead, it would be much more useful.
There's only one 'F' in Fulham
