An example of the views of inner city anti airport campaigners

There are a dozen or more No Aircraft Noise groups around Mascot demanding better outcomes from airport management for surrounding suburbs.  They demand a second airport with a runway 4km long and a cross runway of 2.5km so it can eventually be a replacement for Mascot.  Read on it makes interesting reading to see what No Badgerys Creek campaigners are up against and how the government has had BCA in the pipeline since 2007 but not told us in the western suburbs.

Mike Baird diverts Western Sydney infrastructure to build airport

We don't need an airport but we do need infrastructure.  Lift the curfew at Mascot and that is a cheap, instant 30% increase in capacity at Mascot - BUT NO! the government wants to waste our money building Badgerys Creek Airport and then has the arrogance not to curfew it. Why? because it flies over western suburbs homes.  Why do the eastern suburbs in the electorates of Jo Hockey and Anthony Albanese get a curfew and we don't?

Federal Government won't build rail links for Badgerys Creek Airport until later

When Badgerys Creek Airport was put back on the agenda the federal Government announced plans for rail links but they won't be built until later. It is expected that it will be privately funded. Is this good enough when you want to disrupt people lives with 24/7 noise to also cause further traffic problems and extend local residents commute time to work.

Only 10 days at Christmas time given for submission on Badgerys Creek Environment study

As usual for governments in 2014 public comment is asked for in a sneaky way so no comments are garnered and when government gets it totally wrong for local constituents they can say "but we consulted the local community".  

A new environmental assessment process for the proposed Western Sydney airport at Badgerys Creek was launched on the 4 December with submissions closing on the 18th of December. "This Referral for an airport for Western Sydney to the Environment Minister is a precursor in meeting our environmental obligations and, importantly, in allowing for community consultation,” Mr Truss the Minister for Transport and Infrastructure said.

STORC members address to Penrith City Council on M9 and rail corridor

STORC members addressed Penrith City Council on 16 December 2014 regarding issues arising from the proposed M9 and rail corridor. The major issues are noise and resumption of houses. Coucillors Pru Car and Bernard Bratusa stopped short of withdrawing their corridor recomendation to transport NSW in favour the route to St Marys instead of Penrith. However they voted for an amendment to the Council position that did not support the resumption of established homes at Orchard Hills and Claremont Meadows. Both these councillors are running for the seat of Londonderry in the NSW elections and they can influence this decision if elected.

Budget for Badgerys Creek Airport

Budget for Badgerys Creek Airport.  This weeks Federal budget has intimated that 2.9 billion dollars has been set aside to build all the infrastructure required so  Badgerys Creek Airport seamlessly fits into Western Sydney without disrupting traffic or trade. To the average Joe in Western Sydney 2.9 billion is an astronomical number, last heard of or used when sitting the HSC maths paper.  It is not a number he deals with in his home mortgage or his business loans for his trade or profession. The average Joe is going to think 2.9 billion should set Western Sydney up for an airport like Warragamba Dam set Sydney up for future water requirements.

Western Sydney residents use Mascot and should share the noise

Noise is a major issue for residents around any airport in the world.

There won’t be much noise as planes are getting quieter and there will be a curfew and noise insulation

If aircraft noise is not a problem then why are there so many anti-aircraft websites associated with Mascot airport.  The lobby groups who want relief from noise aircraft at Mascot have achieved a curfew and noise insulation programs and will not stop until there is no noise at Mascot ie a replacement airport. Unless there are similar lobby groups associated with Badgerys Creek we could get all the noise.

Mascot currently services 36 million passengers a year that is 72 million more movements on our roads as passengers get to and from the airport on existing roads.  Then there is the freight, then the support services etc etc.
