1 Building Western Sydney s future

2 Western Sydney is already Australia's third largest economy and, in its own right, would be our fourth largest city. The fourth largest city in Australia should have its own international airport. The Hon Warren Truss MP, Deputy Prime Minister Source: Address to the Western Sydney Airport Conference; The Hon Warren Truss MP, 1 May 2015

3 An airport for Western Sydney As Australia s major global city, Sydney is reliant on aviation services. A new 21st century airport in Western Sydney will ensure continued economic growth and connectivity to an increasingly globalised world. Demand is expanding for Australian goods and services to be delivered to fast-growing Asian regions. Western Sydney is ideally positioned to tap into this growth and capitalise on this opportunity. Through the Western Sydney Airport project the Australian Government is planning for the ongoing development, economic and social prosperity of a modern city. The Australian Government is committed to the long-term growth and prosperity of the Western Sydney region. A new airport would be a major generator of economic activity for the region providing ongoing employment opportunities closer to home for Western Sydney s growing population. The proposed Western Sydney Airport will play a major role in Western Sydney s transformation, by developing infrastructure that will cater for demand for years to come and deliver: Jobs Better roads Economic benefits Better access to aviation services By connecting Western Sydney to the world, a Western Sydney Airport would provide a catalyst to strengthen the region s businesses.

5 Detailed planning The proposed Western Sydney Airport is planned to meet both immediate and long-term aviation demand and provide a source of economic prosperity for future generations. The Australian Government is getting on with the job, ensuring the benefits of this transformational project can be realised as soon as possible. Detailed planning has focussed on ensuring the right infrastructure is delivered at the right time, with the airport s development to be staged in response to demand. Key milestones to date include: QQWorks underway on a $3.6 billion road package, that will provide access to the airport before the first plane takes off QQConsultation phase completed on Sydney Airport Group s right to develop and operate the proposed airport QQDraft Airport Plan prepared, providing strategic vision of the airport development QQDraft Environmental Impact Statement prepared, considering the environmental and social impacts of developing an airport at Badgerys Creek QQDetailed site examination, comprising over 700 in field investigations QQAirport site declared under the Airports Act 1996 QQDraft Airport Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) released for community input Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development 3

6 A stronger economy for Western Sydney Why an airport for Western Sydney? As a region of two million people (nine per cent of Australia s population), Western Sydney would be Australia s fourth largest city in its own right, yet does not have its own airport. By the early 2030s, a further million people will call Western Sydney home. At the same time, demand for aviation services will continue to increase beyond the capacity of Sydney s existing airport. If nothing is done to meet the additional demand, the national economy could lose $34 billion. Studies from 1979 to 2013 considering access to aviation and community impacts have consistently found Badgerys Creek to be the best site of an airport for Western Sydney. Establishing a full-service international and domestic airport in Western Sydney is about planning for the future, ensuring Western Sydney s growing population and economy has access to first-class aviation infrastructure and that Sydney remains Australia s gateway to the world. Economic benefits Today, 30 per cent of workers in Western Sydney travel out of the area for work. Airports attract a range of industries, driving employment and economic activity in the business, manufacturing, tourism, logistics, education and research sectors. The proposed Western Sydney Airport will create tens of thousands of jobs in Western Sydney, both at the airport and within the airport site s business parks. By creating jobs closer to homes, commuting times will be cut improving quality of life and making Western Sydney an even better place to live. Western Sydney will become an international gateway to Australia, increasing tourism and business travel in the region.

7 An airport to grow with Western Sydney Understanding the growing population and demands of a modern city, the Australian Government is putting a plan in place now to ensure a Western Sydney Airport delivers the right infrastructure at the right time for decades to come. This means that development of the proposed airport would be staged over time, to drive employment and economic activity in Western Sydney now and into the future. The development of a new airport presents the opportunity for the Australian Government and private sector to come together to deliver the best outcome for the Western Sydney community. The Australian Government is developing the strategic framework to underpin the construction and operation of the proposed airport, ensuring the infrastructure is delivered to support the nation s economy and maintain commercial viability. What might the airport look like when it opens? From the day operations commence (anticipated to be in 2025), the proposed airport would be capable of handling the full range of international, domestic and some freight aircraft. The airport would have a single 3.7km runway located in the north of the site and a terminal to accommodate up to 10 million passengers a year (a similar size to Adelaide Airport today). The proposed airport would also include business parks, retail operators and 11,500 parking spaces, creating an economic hub for the growing region. The airport would also include environmental protection areas to manage native vegetation and heritage values along creek corridors. 70% of Sydney s population growth over the next two decades will be in Western Sydney, but only 50% of its new jobs. Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development 5

8 Airport layout Development over time As Western Sydney s population increases, its airport would expand to cater for its growing economy. By 2050, around 37 million passengers are expected to use the proposed airport annually and a second runway would be constructed to accommodate further demand. In around 2063 over 82 million passengers are expected to travel to and from the proposed airport each year. Along with increasing passenger numbers, the terminal would grow as would the potential business parks and services operating at the airport (Stage 1) Potential Transport Corridor 2063 (Long Term) Potential Transport Corridor 6 Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development

10 Airport operations By 2030, up to 10 million passengers are expected to come and go using the proposed Western Sydney Airport each year. These will be made up by roughly 25 per cent international and 75 per cent domestic passengers. By operating without a curfew, the airport will capitalise on the economic gains of unrestricted operations to international destinations. Melbourne Airport s curfew-free status equates to an extra two million passengers a year and adds $590 million to the Victorian economy through visitor spending. While the proposed Western Sydney Airport is planned to operate without curfew, demand for flights at night would not be as high as demand during the day. In 2030, the maximum number of aircraft movements (take-offs and landings) in an hour is expected to be 21. This is anticipated to increase to 49 and 85 aircraft movements in 2050 and 2063 respectively. Year Anticipated annual passengers Aircraft a day Stage 1 (2030) 10 million 198 First runway at capacity (2050) 37 million 554 Long term (2063) 82 million 1110 Noise management A detailed noise assessment has been undertaken based on the indicative flight paths for Stage 1 of the proposed Western Sydney Airport (operating with one runway and 198 aircraft a day). Planning for the airport is designed to minimise noise on residential areas. The runway alignment means take-offs and landings would be over the existing and planned extension to the Western Sydney Employment Area and predominantly rural areas to the south-west of the site. Australian Noise Exposure Concept (ANECs) can be found on page 9. ANECs are scenario contours, which take into account the expected number of aircraft movements, types of aircraft (including their noise and how they operate), flight paths and the distribution of traffic by time period of arrivals and departures. Western Sydney Airport may use a point merge system for incoming flights, a new system used internationally to reduce fuel consumption, emissions and noise impacts. Use our noise modelling tool at to understand aircraft noise exposure where you live, based on both ANECs and the N60/70 noise modelling method. 8 Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development

12 Stage 1 indicative flight paths for the 05 operating mode As Australia s 21st century airport, the Western Sydney Airport will be designed to incorporate the latest technology to minimise the impact of noise on the community and improve flight efficiencies, reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This may include using a point merge system for incoming flights to synchronise arriving aircraft and direct them to the runway in a structured manner through a single final approach track. Point merge is now operational in Oslo, Dublin, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Hanover and partially at Paris airports and has been demonstrated to result in fuel efficient flight paths at these busy international airports. 10 Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development

14 Getting there Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan The Australian and New South Wales governments have committed over $3.6 billion to road upgrades to connect the Western Sydney Airport site to Sydney s road network and capitalise on the economic benefits of the airport. Taking a roads first, airport second approach, construction of the Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan commenced in 2015 and will be completed before airport operations are anticipated to commence in This will provide world class transport connections and cater for the airport s road traffic demand. Road Total Estimated Cost Current Status Bringelly Road $509 million Under Construction Werrington Arterial Road $70 million Under Construction The Northern Road $1.6 billion In Planning Ross Street Intersection at Glenbrook $5 million In Planning M12 Motorway $1.2 billion In Planning Local Roads Package $200 million Underway Public transport Upgrades to the road network in advance of operations commencing, combined with a comprehensive ground transport plan for the airport will ensure Sydney s public bus system can be easily and efficiently connected to the proposed airport. This ground transport plan would include dedicated busways, passenger pick-up and drop-off, and pedestrian and cycle ways. The NSW Government has already commenced consultation with the community to identify a suitable passenger rail corridor option to serve the airport, the South West Priority Growth Area and the Western Sydney Employment Area. To allow for a rail service to be implemented in the future, the Australian Government is incorporating a rail corridor and station boxes on the airport from the initial stage. 12 Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development

16 Assessing the airport s environmental considerations The draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) provides a comprehensive analysis of the environmental and social changes from the construction and Stage 1 operations of the proposed Western Sydney Airport (from 2016 to approximately 2030). In addition it provides a strategic assessment of the airport in the long term (up to about 2063). The assessment is based on the draft Airport Plan, which sets out how the initial stage of the airport will be developed on the Badgerys Creek site. The draft EIS outlines the economic benefits the proposed airport would deliver to the Western Sydney community, along with potential mitigation options to minimise impacts on both the community and the environment. The Australian Government is now seeking community input on the draft EIS and draft Airport Plan. Australia s 21st century airport A new airport presents the opportunity to adopt the latest thinking and technology in design, operations and urban planning ensuring long term sustainability and efficiency of the airport. Unlike Australia s existing airports, the proposed Western Sydney Airport could be designed to take account of the latest technology and how we will travel in the future. For example, navigational and lighting aids would be put in place to allow operations to continue safely during fog. The latest technology would be incorporated to provide efficiency for airport operations and minimise noise. Aircraft are up to 75% quieter than 40 years ago and will continue to improve The best airport site The Badgerys Creek airport site is approximately 1,700 hectares (almost twice the size of the Sydney (Kingsford Smith) Airport site) and has been preserved for the development of an airport for nearly three decades. Planning has been undertaken to ensure the airport layout makes the best use of the site, while minimising impacts on surrounding communities and preserving land for the airport s long-term growth. Constructing the first runway in the north of the site will minimise environmental impacts and allow the airport to be more easily connected to rail in the future. The Western Sydney Employment Area borders the site and will provide a buffer between the proposed airport and residential development, while providing access to aviation services for its anticipated 200,000 workers. 14 Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development

17 Guide to Western Sydney Airport draft Airport Plan and draft EIS Topic Outcome More information What the proposed airport will look like Indicative flight paths The draft Airport Plan specifies how the initial stage of the proposed Western Sydney Airport must be developed, including terminal size, runway length and a land use plan which sets out areas for business development and parking. Indicative flight paths have been developed for the initial stage and long term operations at the proposed Western Sydney Airport. These confirm that the existing Sydney (Kingsford Smith) Airport and the proposed Western Sydney Airport could operate independently as high functioning airports. Draft Airport Plan Volume 1, Chapter 7 Aircraft noise Noise exposure contours have been developed based on indicative flight paths for Stage 1 of the airport. The assessment found that on a typical busy day, about 1,500 residents are expected to experience five or more aircraft noise events per day above 70 decibels (similar to a busy kerbside street). Volume 2, Chapter 10 Water quality Air quality Fuel jettisoning European heritage Aboriginal heritage Weather and fog Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area (GBMWHA) Traffic Human health Biodiversity The assessment has found that there is only a low risk for operation of the proposed airport to impact on water quality in nearby waterways. Air quality impacts from the airport are expected to be well within relevant standards and guidelines. By 2030, emissions of air pollutants from the airport will represent between 0.1 and 0.7 of total emissions forecast for the Sydney basin. Greenhouse gas emissions would represent just 0.1 per cent of anticipated Australian transport-related greenhouse gas emissions in Fuel jettisoning (dumping) is not likely to have a significant impact, due to the inability of many aircraft to jettison fuel, guidelines under which fuel jettisoning must take place if it is required and the rapid vaporisation of fuel (meaning it will not reach the ground). The assessment identified 19 European heritage items at the airport site and an additional 22 heritage items in the surrounding area. Construction would involve large-scale clearing and earthworks, precluding preservation of European heritage items in situ. The identified European heritage items would be documented and salvaged, where feasible and prudent, before construction. Construction would affect 39 known Aboriginal heritage sites and would impact approximately 501 hectares of archaeologically sensitive landforms. Operational impacts would be low, limited to indirect impacts on adjacent and nearby sites. Weather is not expected to impact significantly on the operability of the airport. Weather phenomena such as fog, low cloud and low visibility conditions may lower the usability of the proposed airport from time to time; however these can be overcome through use of modern navigational systems and aids. Aircraft operations would not have a significant impact on the outstanding universal value of the GBMWHA. Generally across the GBMWHA, minimal incursion of noise levels in excess of 55 decibels would occur. Stage 1 is expected to result in approximately 41,858 vehicles entering and leaving the airport site each day by The $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan and other road upgrades around the airport site are expected to provide sufficient capacity to cater for the forecast passenger and employee traffic demand associated with the airport. The predicted risk of health impacts have been assessed for noise, air quality, and water quality impacts. Overall the assessment found that potential risks to human health are low and well within internationally acceptable limits. Development of the airport will impact on threatened flora and fauna species on the site. Construction of the airport will be done in a way that reduces these impacts and an offset strategy has been developed to ensure their continued protection.
