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?
