Residents from some of Brisbane’s most affluent suburbs have complained that their neighbourhoods are being ‘torn apart’ by loud planes using the city’s new billion-dollar runway.

Hamilton, New Farm, Teneriffe, Bulimba and Hawthorne locals are desperately trying to ban ‘flight short-cuts’ over suburban areas to keep excessive noise at bay.

More than 3,000 people have signed two change.org petitions calling for Federal Member for Brisbane Trevor Evans and MP for Griffith Terri Butler to push for air traffic to be diverted.
