The Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts and its environmental assessment consultant, WSP Australia, are reviewing submissions received on the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Submissions will be considered in finalising the EIS.

The final EIS will include a submissions report that will summarise submission comments and how they have been addressed. The final EIS is expected to be published in the second half of 2024.

The final noise insulation and property acquisition policy for WSI is expected to be announced in the second half of 2024.

Following the publication of the final EIS, the flight paths for WSI will undergo detailed design and will be finalised in advance of WSI’s opening, by late 2026.
