canberra airport hits out at `disgraceful`, `grubby` safety claims

Canberra Airport has slammed what it described as a "disgraceful" and "grubby" campaign it says is using the Essendon Airport crash to cast doubt on its safety.Airport managing director Stephen Byron said a former pilot, who he did not name, was trying to draw a number of media outlets into reporting safety problems caused by buildings around the airport. 
Aircraft landing at Canberra Airport is at risk of building-induced turbulence, a pilots association has warned.  Photo: Rohan Thomson"The attempt is to draw an analogy between the tragic crash at Essendon, and the safety of operations at Canberra Airport, and the insinuation is that buildings at airports are unsafe and that buildings at airports caused the accident at Essendon Airport, and because we too have a shopping centre at Canb

'the bush capital' canberra's new number plate slogan

Canberra really is "The Bush Capital" – at least according to our new number plate slogan.The city's long-time nickname claimed more than 1600 votes and beat out "Ngunnawal Country" (1058 votes) and "Driving the Nation" (479 votes) to become the new catchcry of the territory's number plates.

the slow, slow work to speed up the canberra-sydney heavy rail line

In October 2016, I wrote about the Canberra-Sydney rail link, comparing it with the much better rail services in some Third World countries, and suggesting a way to get the travel time down significantly without spending a lot of money on high-speed rail.You may be interested to know whether anything came of it.
A leading rail business is exploring ways to cut the Canberra-Sydney trip to two hours. Photo: Graham TidyAfter I wrote the article, I had many responses from Canberra Times readers, some of whom were involved professionally in past Australian rail studies, and others who were just interested in improving the Canberra-Sydney service because they preferred to travel by train.There is now an interest group committed to improving the Canberra-Sydney line in the short term (preferabl

canberra raiders five-eighth blake austin plays down nrl rivalry with cronulla s

It's being billed as a grudge match, but Canberra Raiders five-eighth Blake Austin says former Cronulla Sharks hooker Michael Ennis' decision to hang up the boots has already ended any budding rivalry between the two clubs.Ennis became public enemy No. 1 in Canberra when he mocked the Viking Clap after the Sharks beat the Raiders in the opening week of the 2016 NRL finals.

canberra's icon water wins ixom best tap water competition

Canberra has better water than any other provider in NSW and the good news is it's on tap.Blind tasting began at Exhibition Park on Tuesday as part of the NSW/ACT Ixom Best Tap Water competition and Icon Water was named the winner.
Canberra's Iconwater was the best in show.  Icon Water manager Robert Allen said he and fellow staff were thrilled."We don't have to run a complex chemical removal process in order to get high quality drinking water to the Canberra public," he said."It doesn't have an underlying chemical taste. It is refreshing to drink, almost sweet. It tastes like pure water."Water Industry Operators Association of Australia chief operations officer Craig Mathisen said hometown advantage played no role in the win, which came after two days of judging colour, clarity, odour a

review: jamie's italian canberra

It's hard to forget the excitement and energy at the opening of Jamie's Italian three years ago, with staff trained to an extreme, polished to a shine and greeting Jamie Oliver as the celebrity he is. They screamed, they took selfies and they believed themselves part of a seriously exciting new eatery in Canberra.

letters to the editor: trains, planes and autos

Dr Mike Freelander seems to have missed the point (Letters, March 10).It is not about any individual politician, keen as he might be on helping to solve the problem (slow train Canberra to Sydney), it is about the appalling lack of vision of our leaders.As far as I am aware, over the years (more than 20 years now) there has been announced study after study about the feasibility of a fast train between Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne.Nothing has ever come out of these "studies".If our politicians cannot come to terms with the need to tackle this type of issue seriously, then I don't know what they are there for.Paying lip service to the popular clamour and inviting "fellow travellers" to "make an appointment to visit my (his) office when Parliament next resumes" is almost an insult to the lo
