$43,901 In Australian Government Funding To Boost Security At Gunnedah Airport

Wednesday, 16 November 2005

Federal Member for Gwydir, John Anderson, today announced Gunnedah Airport will receive more than $43,900 from the Australian Government’s $35 million Regional Airport Funding Program to upgrade its security infrastructure.

Mr Anderson said the Australian Government was determined to protect the security of Australia’s aviation industry.

“That protection extends to the many people and businesses that use Gunnedah Airport every day of the year,” Mr Anderson said.

Gunnedah Airport became a security-controlled airport on 10 March 2005. It is one of 146 regional airports that are now required to have a transport security program approved by the Australian Government to strengthen aviation security around the country.

Mr Anderson said transport security programs were tailored to local conditions and this funding would help Gunnedah Airport increase and improve security measures, such as fencing and access control.

Basic security upgrades at Gunnedah Airport will include installing: • security fencing; • security locks for gates and doors; • shatterproof glass windows; and • security signage.

“The Australian Government recognises the importance of aviation to regional communities such as Gunnedah,” he said.

The Australian Airports Association has worked closely with the Australian Government to negotiate the funding arrangements for Gunnedah Airport.
