The Jubilee Line Extension is the extension of the London Underground Jubilee Line into southern and eastern London.
The construction of the Jubilee Line between Baker Street and Charing Cross had always been intended to be the first phase in a longer Fleet Line (as the Jubilee Line was originally called).

 LRB | Andrew Saint : The Jubilee Line Extension   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
The Hong Kong lines were built by the cut-and-cover method, not in deep-bored tunnels, so the stations emerged as raw, horizontal caverns, vast enough to accommodate trains twice the length you have in London, and differentiated by colour alone.
In their hands the Hong Kong box becomes the belly of a colossal whale, ribbed with double vaults that perch high on a long line of concrete piers and capitals of slender shapeliness: all this you contemplate as you are drawn down in processionally by escalator, along with the light.
On the same lines, a Wellsian note of ominous descent is contrived by Michael Hopkins at Westminster, through the intermingling of escalators and trusses.
