No curfew plan for Western Sydney Airport – adds insult to injury

Media Release
Lee Rhiannon 1 May 2017
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.
