LET­TERS OF THE WEEK

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY -

HOW is it the per­fect place for an air­port? It’s in a ditch, fog some­times doesn’t clear till 11am which will put con­stant de­lays to flights, there is no in­fra­struc­ture there, no one is go­ing to want to catch a cab into the city from there, even on a train it’ll take ages to get into the CBD. It’s a ridicu­lous place to put an air­port. Es­pe­cially when Kings­ford Smith is cur­rently run­ning at 60-70 per cent ca­pac­ity. Have they even found any­one will­ing to build and fund the air­port which will most likely turn into a white ele­phant? Trent Byrne, via Face­book

ARE you kid­ding? Mac­quarie Air­ports Cor­po­ra­tion is rub­bing its hands to­gether to add to their air­port mo­nop­oly with a PPP (Pub­lic Pri­vate Part­ner­ships) in­vest­ment with the state and fed­eral gov­ern­ments. That way they can charge an av­er­age of $90 per hour for park­ing and re­tail­ers over­priced rents who then will pass that on to con­sumers by way of $23 sand­wiches and $10 cof­fees. And you can dou­ble those amounts by the time Badgerys Creek air­port is com­pleted. Sean Grant, via Face­book
