Brindabella Park Air Toxic?

By TenPro 5 April 2010 22

Brindabella Park is a business precinct adjacent to the Canberra Airport. The air at Brindabella Park is often saturated with the acrid stench of aircraft engine exhaust fumes mostly outside the buildings but at times inside the buildings as well. This catches at the back of my throat and often makes me cough. The internet has a plethora of articles regarding the toxic effects of aircraft engine exhaust fumes on humans. Some examples are:

Despite the preponderance of evidence that proves the toxic effects of aircraft engine exhaust on humans the ACT government has allowed the building of Brindabella Park and other buildings adjacent to the Canberra Airport.

I am so close that I could throw a rock onto the runway. As a result the future holds much ill health for thousands of people and the resulting massive health costs to the tax payer. This is particularly distressing for the children who attend the child care centre at Brindabella Park as the seeds of future ill health will be sown at a very early age and have a much more insidious effect as they are still developing and they spend much of their time outside where the air is most toxic. Of course it will be many years before most people become ill and it will not be possible to establish a cause and effect relationship so it will not be possible to find the ACT government legally liable.

I love the smell of kerosene in the morning.

Tiger Airways makes you walk long distances across the tarmac on their flights to get from the plane to their booking “shed” and back, are we being exposed to toxic fumes then? For that matter, ive never seen a ground controller or one of those luggage cart drivers out on the tarmac wearing breathing protective gear either. I think if there was even a minor risk, you would see all the staff covering up all the time on the tarmac, this isn’t even a storm in a teacup, its pure codswallop. Sounds like the OP needs to get checked out for plant or other allergies.
