To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives of Australia.

The petition of the residents of Bankstown/Liverpool and its environs brings to the attention of the House our desperate concern regarding the proposed expansion of Bankstown Airport.

The noise, traffic and pollution generated by such an expansion will not only be catastrophic to the residents, it will devastate the quality of our lives as well as the value of our properties.

The residents of Bankstown/Liverpool consider it vital that an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) be undertaken regarding any proposal to upgrade Bankstown Airport.

The undersigned petitioners request therefore that the House not proceed with the proposal to expand Bankstown Airport to permit regional aircraft and/or 737 jet aircraft from operating in and out of that facility.

Your petitioners humbly pray that your Honourable House take action to stop the expansion of Bankstown Airport.

by Mrs Irwin (from 3,170 citizens).
