Construction at the $ 5.6 billion Western Sydney International Airport at Badgerys Creek began a year ago – with the 24-hour airport to be opened in 2026.

Although the proposed flight paths have been released for less than two years, indicative routes show that airplanes will drop to only 1500 meters if they fly over the outer western suburbs of the city before landing.

The Federal Government's Environmental Impact Assessment estimates that a flight will depart from the airport daily by 2063, corresponding to approximately one flight per minute.

Real estate analyst Louis Christopher told Daily Mail Australia that you only had to look at different real estate prices around the existing Sydney airport to get an idea of ​​how flight paths can affect house prices.

& # 39; In inner-western suburbs such as Leichardt that are right under the flight paths, properties trade with a discount & # 39 ;, said the founder of SQM Research.

& # 39; They do change in value and it can be more than 10 percent. & # 39;

& # 39; I cannot imagine that there could be another reason for that difference than airplanes flying over. & # 39;

Core Logic data shows a difference of more than seven percent in median house prices between Mascot – directly adjacent to the airport – and adjacent Eastlakes.

& # 39; I think the prices will recover over time, as with Sydney Airport, but it can be hard to get started & # 39 ;, LJ Hooker Bringelly broker Hunter Maxwell told Daily Mail Australia.

Local brokers in the Badgerys Creek area also predict that there may be a negative impact on prices.

& # 39; Over time, I think prices will recover like in the Sydney Airport area, but it can be hard to get started & # 39 ;, LJ Hooker Bringelly broker Hunter Maxwell told Daily Mail Australia.

& # 39; You have half a demography that continues to work and has an airport next door, but also half that don't want the noise. & # 39;

The adoption of a third runway at Melbourne's Tullamarine airport in 2012 led to Steve Hoblos, director of LJ Hooker Tullamarine, predicting a 10 percent fall in property prices.

Acoustic expert Barry Murray has also warned that people who live within 10 km of the airport can expect a routinely disturbed sleep.

In the town of Blaxland in the Blue Mountains, located directly below the & # 39; merge point & # 39; of the different flight paths, the noise is expected to reach 55 decibels almost 100 times a day.

The average call volume is around 60 decibels, and Mr. Murray said that although the sound of an airplane flying above you may not wake residents, it would disrupt their sleep.

& # 39; They may not be aware of the sound, but it affects the sleep level and therefore the rest they get out of that sleep & # 39 ;, he told ABC News.

Blue Green Mayor Mark Greenhill told Daily Mail Australia that the delay in announcing the flight path became a real concern.

& # 39; We gave our reactions and opposition to the Environmental Impact Statement in 2015, but things have changed again and we just don't know what happens & he said.

A spokesperson for the Department of Infrastructure, Transport and Cities told Daily Mail Australia that the process of designing flight paths for the airport was still ongoing.

& # 39; The government has always been convinced that there will be a comprehensive process to develop and formalize flight paths, including formal community consultation, & # 39; said the spokesman.

He had previously described the delay in releasing flight route details as & # 39; offensive and disrespectful & # 39 ;.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced a new visitor center at the airport this month as a drawcard for locals and tourists with excellent views of the site's construction.

"Locals and tourists will be able to pick up the international airport of West Sydney years before a plane even takes off," he said in a statement.

& # 39; This center offers the people of West Sydney the opportunity to see the transformation in the region first hand, driven by the development of the airport. & # 39;
