Micky Mouse airport won’t reduce noise in Sydney

Plans for Badgerys Creek revealed at the recent Sydney Airport Community Forum (SACF) show that noise will continue to grow from the existing airport at Mascot.

The Infrastructure Minister was quoted as saying that the new airport would only “service demand from Western Sydney”.

Airlines can schedule flights from Badgerys Creek, but this will be demand driven and not forced by regulation.

Representatives at the SACF meeting were unhappy that a second airport would not provide any relief for the residents of Sydney by constraining Sydney Airport to operate within the noise sharing targets in the Long Term Operating Plan with extra traffic being forced to use the second airport.

At an earlier meeting, No Aircraft Noise questions revealed that there are no plans to move the early morning curfew jets to Badgerys Creek. At present Boeing 747 and Airbus A380 international jets are allowed to land between 5 and 6 am in the morning.

These landings affect the suburbs of Kurnell, Botany, Tempe and Kyeemagh.  They should not be allowed as they limit the quiet period to just 6 hours, not enough sleep for anyone.

Only small jets and propeller planes flying during the curfew would be transferred to the new airport, there is no plan to move the large international jets.

NAN wants an airport to serve all of Sydney’s air traffic needs at a near city location that does not blast residents with noise.

The new airport must be able to operate 24 hours a day for Australia’s biggest city. For this reason it must be outside the city limits.
