    Today, Melbourne Airport announced that it is adamant that the North-South direction is the more sustainable direction for its flight path given crosswinds would hamper flights due to crosswinds if it was to build east to west.

    As a result, the proposed runway plans from north to south will be built on the west side of the Airport that will see more traffic noise over Keilor & Altona. I am unsure if anyone knows if other suburbs will be affected?

    Also, Essendon Airport plan to build another runway in the near future and I was wondering if they will now go North to South as a result of Melbournes findings?

    I'm sure this will impact a lot of investors who plan a strategy to invest in the North West..


    Thoughts?

    It will also affect houses much further afield. Where I am in Richmond we have planes flying directly over the house when they are using the n-s runway so I am looking forward to more noise from the increased capacity.

    No way, exactly how noisy is it from Richmond? That is quite worrying

    How about a train line to go with it?

    IMO, a train line to the airport running through St Slbans and Sunshine is a terrible idea, but there aren't too many options either :(

    Do you have a source on this particular point? Unless you’ve got insider knowledge I can’t see this advertised publicly. If anything they have announced they are narrowing their runways to build more commercial buildings on their precincts instead.

    Generally speaking their master plan did say that whatever MEL does they would have to follow suit so they will have to increase usage of their N/S runway in a few years. Not sure what it means for their EW runway and associates flight path.

    In general I’d be cautious of investing in the suburbs affected especially before they showcase new flight paths.

    With the 2nd N-S runway being built for dual ops, it's expected that the E-W runway would be used 1% of the time (3 to 4 days per year), basically only when crosswinds dictate as such.

    Those living in broadmeadows and surrounds should see a noticeable reduction in noise generated by aircraft.

    Will it make any difference in property prices in broadmeadows?

    For all of you that own properties that can be subdivided, get your applications in now before your zoning changes to something potentially more restrictive. I wonder how this proposed new runway impacts on the holding pattern that planes are put into.

    I wouldn't know at this stage. Flight paths and holding patterns would need to be determined and then councils "may" very well make some changes to accommodate this.

    Perfect just bought in Keilor Village.

    I currently live on a main road and was looking forward to a quiet relocation.
