Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : June 24th 2009
2 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, June 25, 2009 MB NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Rats in our ranks From Page 1 Owner of Jeanelle of Five Dock, Maria Pollicina has to crank up the radio to avoid the screech- ing and scratching of rats on her roof. ''If I turn off the radio in the shop, I can here them running on the roof, so I just keep the volume up,'' Mrs Pollicina said. Scott Hill, who is the owner of a pest management business in Burwood, said he recently re- ceived a complaint about water rats in the Five Dock area. ''This is the time of year where people find them more as they are trying to get out of the cold and find warm areas.'' He said the reason why people were finding them dead was because bait was being put down. Bottlemart employee Llewellyn Evans said the rats were affecting the character and profile of the area. ''We have heaps going through our bins at the front of the shop,'' he said. ''I'm deeply concerned about the rat issue in Five Dock.''

NSW 2150 Second airport plan revived PLANS for a second Sydney airport have taken flight again with the Federal Transport Min- ister Anthony Albanese warn- ing that Mascot will not be able to handle extra flights by 2029. Last week Mr Albanese ap- proved Sydney Airport's masterplan which estimates the number of flights will jump to 427,000 by 2029. ''My approval of the master plan does not, however, indicate acceptance that the airport can and should handle the projected growth in traffic,'' he said. ''The national interest dic- tates that Sydney will need new airport capacity.'' He called on the State Govern- ment to participate in a joint study to find potential sites for a second airport. He said over the next 20 years, more flights would mean more traffic around the airport, more pressure on road and rail infra- structure and residents would be exposed to even longer periods of aircraft noise. Sydney Airport currently handles about one-third of the country's air traffic. No Aircraft Noise president Allan Rees labelled the minis- ter's approval as a ''weak de- cision''. Mr Rees said the minister would be dumping up to 469 planes per day on his electorate. 39 42 31 Index 8 Police Beat 16 Pet of the Week 16 Sudoku 22 Giveaway 20 Opinion 28 Clever Living 29 Alive 30 What'sOn 35 Open Houses 36 Home Living 45 Sport 47 TV guide Today Fine.
