Summary

On 20 March 1996 the Minister for Transport and Regional Development (the Minister), pursuant to Section 16 of the Air Services Act, directed Airservices Australia to: take immediate steps to increase the use of the east-west runway at Sydney in order to distribute the noise generated by the airport more fairly, and report by 16 December 1996 on a proposed long term operating plan for the airport and associated airspace. The review was based on: all three runways at the airport, including the full length of the east-west runway, are to be available for use by jet and propeller aircraft; maximum use is to be made of flightpaths over water and non-residential areas; the capacity of the airport is to be maintained to the maximum practicable extent but the programmed movement rate is not to exceed 80 movements per hour; the safety of aviation operations is not to be compromised; and procedures involving independent use of the intersecting runways (such as the procedures known as SIMOPS) are not to be adopted)
