Sydney 'absolutely' needs second airport: AWU national secretary

Australian Workers Union (AWU) national secretary Paul Howes, speaking at the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit, stated (09-Aug-2013) Sydney "absolutely" needs a second airport. Mr Howes said he was pessimistic about Badgerys Creek being selected as the site for a new airport as federal politicians are unwilling to risk marginal seats in Western Sydney.
