City of Botany Bay Welcomes Announcement of Badgerys Creek

Published on 16 April 2014

Mayor of the City of Botany Bay and President of the Australian Mayoral Aviation Council, Ben Keneally, has welcomed the announcement of an airport at Badgery’s Creek. 

“This is fantastic news for the City of Botany Bay.  It locks in the sustainability of the curfew and the Long Term Operating Plan which are essential features of an airport that is on the doorstep of residential areas”, said Mr Keneally.

“Almost 18 years after the Howard government cancelled Badgery's Creek, it is great news to have it back on the agenda.

“The location at Badgery’s Creek will drive jobs and growth for Western Sydney and reduce congestion pressures that would otherwise only build in our area”, Mr Keneally said.
