According to the CT article: “Australia’s largest airport and primary freight destination, Sydney Airport, is constrained by an overnight curfew and is reaching capacity, prompting Canberra Airport to develop the biggest freight hub in eastern Australia over the next 20 years.”
I guess the upshot of this is there will be even more office development out at the airport that will side skirt the territorial planning regime (depriving the various town centres any additional office based employment), potentially more aircraft noise as more planes will be flying 24/7 (even though it is cleverly disguised by the ANEF standards), and finally continuation of the ubiquitous traffic problems past the airport precinct (even though some road upgrades are planned).
