Approval of Melbourne Airport Master Plan

From the federal minister's (Catherine King) media release web page:

I have today approved the Melbourne Airport Master Plan in accordance with section 81 of the Airports Act 1996.

Airport Master Plans are designed to provide high level approval for medium and long-term airport development.

Today’s approval does not indicate an approval of the future Major Development Plan for the proposed third runway, which is a separate process subject to assessment on its own merits against the requirements of the Act.

As expected, many members of the communities surrounding the airport have made representations regarding their views on Melbourne Airport’s proposed north-south third runway project and the impacts it will have on their homes and lives.

In providing today’s approval, I have indicated my concerns regarding some aspects of the proposal – including changes to the existing runways and noise sharing and mitigation arrangements.

The management of these concerns will be an important consideration during the assessment of the Major Development Plan, which is expected to be submitted in early 2023.

Ahhh yes they will spend the next half century pi$$ing our cash up a wall and nothing will be built. Like everything else that is Tullamarine.

What does medium and long term even mean? Is that a century, millennium? Certainly isn’t a few years.

Any mention of a Bunnings store at Tullamarine?

Surely they could put one on the threshold of 34.

How is the rail link coming along?

Um, Tullamarine Airport is privately owned. Who's money do you think they'll be pi$$ing up against the wall. It won't be mine.

First they say they own it, later they say they lease it.
Which is it?

Beancounters account for long term leased assets (like an airport leased for 50 years with a 49 year option) as being “owned” by the lessee. But the legal owner of Tulla remains the Commonwealth. Tulla is a ‘core regulated airport’ for the purposes of the Commonwealth Airports Act.

Same thing happens with aircraft. Most airlines are not the legal owner of the aircraft they operate. They’re leased.

If YMMB is any indication, be careful what you wish for. I, for one, wouldn't mind quite so much if they required the roofs of all these warehouses they insist on building to be reinforced enough you could land on 'em in an emergency without going right through.

We can hope.. but that would require APAM engaging design consultants that understand that a taxiway is more than just a couple of layers of bitumen. Good luck with that!!

Not sure what you're all complaining about, 40 year lead times ensures ALL bugs are ironed out. 40 years gives time to ensure arrivals and approaches will have zero noise complaints, and 10 years to build a rail line to an airport, nuthin.' stop whinging and get on board.

As part of the Master Race Plan could it also have provision for ensuring that the Cat IIIB capability is maintained all year round.
