Fauna Suicide
One thing that has not been stated about this Airport at Badgerys Creek is the fact it will make Kangaroo's, Wallabys and Wombats and other Australian mammals commit suicide in the Blue Mountains and other National Parks under Western flight paths.

The Blue Mountains sandstone terrain is characterized by steep cliffs and canyons and when animals are frightened they will run, but they run and sometimes fall over cliffs.
