Mas­ter­plan ad­vo­cated

Hills Gazette - - NEWS -

SWAN View res­i­dent Peter White­hurst says home­own­ers will be ex­posed to un­ac­cept­able lev­els of air­craft noise if Perth Air­port pro­ceeds with flight cor­ri­dors for its new run­way.

Mr White­hurst said air­craft de­par­tures head­ing north should be based on Perth Air­port’s 2009 Mas­ter­plan.

“The plan re­leased for com­ment in­di­cates the ma­jor­ity of all north­ern air traf­fic take­offs will be di­rected over Belle­vue, Koongamia, Green­mount and Swan View and a small num­ber of turbo prop air­craft over Bush­mead, Helena Val­ley, Boya and Dar­ling­ton,” he said.

“This is con­tra­dic­tory to Perth Air­port’s Mas­ter­plan 2009 where the flight tracks for the new run­way are clearly in­di­cated as air­craft tak­ing off and climb­ing over Hazelmere and Mid­land, and then turn­ing east over the ru­ral ar­eas of Mid­dle Swan and Red Hill.”
