Airservices Australia

(Question No. 965)

Dr Jensen asked the Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, in writing, on 8 May 2012:

In respect of aircraft noise in Perth, (a) how many noise complaints have been made to Airservices Australia since 1 November 2008, (b) what proportion (as a percentage) of these complaints were made by constituents in the electoral divisions of (i) Tangney, (ii) Perth, (iii) Brand, and (iv) Fremantle, (c) will he consider conducting a review of the flight path changes instituted as a consequence of the Western Australia Route Review Project (WARRP), and (d) what criteria are being used to define the success (or otherwise) of the WARRP.

Mr Albanese: The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(a-d) 53,731 from 344 complainants. This includes 21,411 complaints that were from one person.

Airservices Australia has already completed a post implementation review of WARRP.

The Western Australia Route Review Project resolved a safety issue identified in an audit of the Perth Terminal Control Unit by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority. Airservices has advised that their analysis since the changes were made indicate improved safety performance including fewer safety incidents.
