Ex­pect noise but not ben­e­fits

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - YOUR SAY - Matthew Sher­wood, via Face­book

THE only flow-on ef­fect will be noise, pollution and the traf­fic of trucks car­ry­ing fuel to the air­port (“Badgerys to be­come ‘aerotropo­lis’”, The Stan­dard Face­book page, Oc­to­ber 18).

The “ben­e­fits” are a fan­tasy that will never even­tu­ate.

The air­port will only see pas­sen­ger flights at night while the ‘pre­mium’ air­port is closed for cur­few.

The day time freight flights and an­ti­quated air­craft of su­per-bud­get car­ri­ers won’t sup­port de­vel­op­ment of this size and scale. All pre­mium pas­sen­ger flights will still op­er­ate out of Kings­ford Smith.
