Yes the platforms were there partly built and could be observed from platform 6. Some of the area was screened off. The difference being that the St. James platforms were finished but are still waiting for track to be laid. Unlikely to happen in the near future.

IIRC, The ESR platforms were there in the original build, just never actually used.
St James also got (still) unused platforms.
