The Greens say the Turnbull government’s refusal to consider a night-time curfew for the proposed Western Sydney Airport adds insult to injury for Western Sydney residents.
“This airport is a dud deal for Western Sydney residents. The fact that the Turnbull government is refusing to consider a night-time curfew adds insult to injury,” Greens NSW Senator Lee Rhiannon said.
“Sydney Airport has a curfew between 11pm and 6am, why don’t Western Sydney residents deserve at least the same consideration?
“We need 21st century solutions like High Speed Rail – not 20th century problems like polluting airports.
“Under the Turnbull and Berejiklian governments, big business comes first and communities come last,” Senator Rhiannon said.
