To the Honourable the Speaker, and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

That the potential noise hazard to resident of Sandgate, Shorncliffe, Brighton and Nudgee Beach (including 4,000 aged people) will become intolerable when the new Brisbane Airport is operative in 1987, if protective action is not taken.

Your petitioners therefore pray that the Federal Government will, when the redeveloped Brisbane Airport becomes operative ensure

1. No jet aircraft use the 32' 14' crosswind runway:

2. That the Department maintain the curfew on the runway from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

3. Introduce a six months trial period if the policy to lift the curfew is adhered to, to enable residents to voice their opinions on such a curfew before Government policy is finalised.

(Curfew from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.)

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
