Go north for a sec­ond Perth air­port

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Western Opinion -

OUR State Gov­ern­ment al­ways seems short­sighted when it comes to plan­ning. A golf course near the air­port should never be re­zoned for hous­ing: it is too close to the air­port.

I live a long way from the air­port. Yet, the air­craft noise at night is very an­noy­ing; some­times we won­der whether the plane is go­ing to land on the roof of our house.

In­stead of en­larg­ing our air­port and ex­tend­ing run­ways, land should be set aside north of Perth for a sec­ond air­port, with our light rail and free­way ex­tended to it.

I would vote for a cur­few on night land­ings and take-offs, as Syd­ney has and which has worked for many years.

Frank Granger, Ap­ple­cross.
