The results, as provided in the EIS and AEIS documents, indicated that ‘Do Minimum’ is significantly better economically (NPV, BCR and capital cost) than the ‘New Runway’ option, even with increased access to destinations for the ‘New Runway.'
The economic assessment results (as well as environmental aspects) give a strong indication that the project, based on the ‘New Runway’, should have been re-evaluated, unless more information was made available to show otherwise. The new CASA regulations also allow 'Do Nothing' to be a viable option.
