Sydney Airport Plans to Add Two More Runways

Federal and state governments in Australia have been arguing for a long time over the prospect of building a second airport in Sydney, so long, in fact, that the plan of building two new runways is being reconsidered, a plan that was proposed decades ago.  Those two new runways would be built on reclaimed land on the other side of Botany Bay, which is south of the airport.  The runways would have a new terminal and road and rail connections to the main airport.

The plan of building the new runways as an alternative to a second airport has won the backing of NSW state treasurer Mike Baird.  Baird told the Telegraph that the plan should be considered in detail and that it is a way to maximize the infrastructure without impacting the curfew.  On the other hand, aviation journalist Ben Sandilands says there are two big problems with the new runways: the airport is limited to 80 flights per hour, not matter how many runways they have, and it won't help serve Western Sydney's growing demand.
