This runway orientation does offer the least noise pollution. The nearest suburbs under the flightpath are northeast of the Prospect Reservoir, 15km from the runway thresholds.
North-south would bring the runway thresholds within <10km of St Marys .

This is pretty much the way it has always been planned for Badgerys precisely for this very reason.

I'm genuinely wondering about that design - I know it's only indicative, but would you not want double taxiways? Particularly on those passing the terminals and between the runways?

^ It looks like it has that already? Unless I'm interpreting it wrong it looks like each runway has a pair of taxiways and there are a total of 6 cross taxiways between the runways - 4 at the SW end and 2 at the NE end.

Ah yes, you're right. The lanes are centrelines rather than boundaries. Fell for the old Ausway vs UBD trick.

Don't mind me then.
