Go north for a second Perth airport
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.
