Badgerys creek airport could be approved next week

Unsubstantiated media reports claim the Federal cabinet about to give the green light for an airport to be built at Badgerys Creek.

The reports claim a cabinet minute prepared by Infrastructure Minister Warren Truss has recommended approval be given for a second Sydney airport at Badgerys Creek and the $200 million connecting road network.

The minute is expected to be taken to cabinet next week, when Parliament resumes, with the support of Prime Minister Tony Abbott.

The 1700-hectare Badgerys Creek site was bought in the 1980s and the airport proposal has been controversial ever since.
