The final Environmental Impact Statement has been released for the new Badgerys Creek Airport. This contains more details and updated information from the draft EIS released last year. It details proposed flight routes and impacts on the surrounding area, as a 24 hour airport. Night flights would see all approaches and departures come to/from the South West which is mostly rural landholdings and National Park. However, opponents from various groups have dismissed the findings, especially the Blue Mountains Council who would be impacted by the lower level flights over the Blue Mountains National Park and towns.

It has now been passed on to the Environmental Minister for his approval.

In a separate announcement, 11 rail routes were announced to be included in a study connecting the planned Badgerys Creek Airport to the rest of Sydney and the CBD. 6 routes are from the airport to various regional suburbs, then 5 route options from those regional centres into the Sydney CBD.

Proposals range from a $2 billion extension of the South West Rail Link to the airport (but would suffer from a long travel times into downtown Sydney, about 90 to 120 minutes, longer than most inter-capital domestic flights in Australia) to $26 billion for a dedicated high speed line (160Kph) that would see travel times of about 23 to 30 minutes (with a new land tax introduced to pay for it).

Initially proposed to just have motorway connections to the airport when opened, there is resounding support from local businesses to have a rail connection built in time also for the opening of the airport. An earlier report by a regional chamber of commerce supported two rail links to be built, one east to the Sydney CBD, the other is a North-South rail link between Campbelltown and the North West suburbs.

The Western Sydney Airport sure looks bland from a layout point of view. Even non-optimal from an operational standpoint considering it is a greenfield site:

-It lacks dual parallel taxiways (not including apron taxilane)
-Boxing in the terminal site like that prevents landside facility expansion beyond what is shown.
-Only two parallel runways? For a new site they should have enough land set aside for 4 independent parallel runways in case the powers that be decide SYD should close in the decades ahead.

They should just lift the ridiculous movement cap on SYD which would yield plenty of capacity. Redevelop the terminals as previously planned then even put in a 3rd parallel runway. Much more cost efficient and environmentally friendly than spending billions and billions on a new airport and related surface links.

If you knew the history of Badgery Creek site, it will never be more than two runways. Just not the land available for more.....

Which just further illustrates it is not an optimal solution.

Plus it will take longer to travel to or from the airport to the Sydney CBD than the majority of domestic regional flights that will be forced to transfer to Badgerys Creek. While high speed railways have been proposed, there is nothing certain about it ever happening. The freeway options are frequently choked too.
