PAUL FLETCHER: I just want to make a couple of comments in relation to Labor’s hastily cobbled together announcement today in relation to Western Sydney Airport. Can I start by saying that the Turnbull Government absolutely recognises that the new Western Sydney Airport will need to operate in a way which addresses concerns about flight paths and aircraft noise, and meets the expectations of the community. That’s why we are working through, in a careful and orderly way, issues in relation to aircraft noise, flight plan, and so on.

Anyone who has attempted the peak-hour commute from Western Sydney knows how frustrating it can be when you’re stuck in traffic.
The Victorian Government’s announcement that it will provide the full funding required to build the Western Distributor project is confirmation of the position the Turnbull Government has taken on this project – because its economics are underpinned by tolls, both on the new components and through an extension of the CityLink toll concession, it is not a project which requires grant funding from the Commonwealth.
The third report card for the $3.6 billion Western Sydney Infrastructure Plan has been released, showing significant progress has been made in delivery of the projects.
