While some residents in Brisbane suffer from constant flight noise, and low flying planes at any time of night, the Liberal and Labor parties ignore the obvious solutions.
The Greens will be introducing a bill to Parliament to introduce a curfew, a cap on flights and a long-term operating plan to prioritise more flights over the water.
Noise abatement mechanisms like these are already in place and providing relief for other communities near other airports across Australia, including at Sydney Airport. Apparently, a curfew or a cap on flights is good enough for Sydney residents, but not Brisbane.
Brisbane Airport plans to double air traffic over Brisbane between now and 2035, meaning without serious solutions like a cap and curfew, noise from Brisbane Airport is only going to get worse. After 1,000 local residents rallied at Brisbane Airport Corporation headquarters in June, it’s time for the Liberal and Labor parties to join us in supporting action.
Join Elizabeth Watson-Brown, Member for Ryan and Spokesperson for Infrastructure, as well as Max Chandler-Mather, Member for Griffith, and Stephen Bates, Member for Brisbane for a briefing on what’s included in the Greens bill to tackle flight noise, ask your questions, and learn how you can help bring the Parliament to action.
