  1. Turbidity and SS exceedances at C8 on 30 December 2010 were recorded.  Due to intake owner's constraint, delay was experienced in the re-provision of modified frame-type silt screen to protect City Garden intake against potential impact arising from the dredging works and accumulation of discharge and pollutants from nearby outfall adjacent to the intake. The exceedances were confirmed related to HY/2009/11 contractor difficulties in the provision of frame type silt screen.  Contractor enhanced mitigation measures with a double layer silt curtain on 7 Jan 2011. No further exceedance was recorded after installation of double layer silt curtain. Close monitoring on contractor mitigation and the variation of water quality results will be maintained. Contractor will further liaise with the owner on the re-provision of the frame-type silt screen.

 

Complaints, Notifications of Summons and Successful Prosecutions

  1. There were no environmental complaint was recorded in the reporting month.

 

  1. An incident of split hopper barge named Shun Tat 11 (Licence no. B21623V) for the Contract no. HK/2009/01 was recorded at the location near Cross Harbour Water Mains marine work zone on 24 January 2011.  The ballast tank on the port side of the split hopper barge was flooded with water. The split hopper barge was towed back to the dredging zone within a short period and immediately opened its hopper to dump the sediment back to the same dredging trench. It is suspected that the hull on the port side might be broken causing ingress of seawater into the ballast tanks. Meanwhile, the barge has been demobilized from the site and currently anchored at To Kwa Wan Typhoon Shelter. The emergency dumping was notified to EPD at 10:00a.m. on 24 January 2011. This barge will not be deployed to the site under HK/2009/01 to dispose the dredged sediment until it has been repaired and inspected by the competent surveyor. The incident will be kept in view for determining further follow up and remedial measures.

 

Site Inspections and Audit

  1. The Environmental Team (ET) conducted weekly site inspections for Contract nos. HY/2009/11, HK/2009/01, HK/2009/02 and HY/2009/15 under EP no. EP-356/2009 in the reporting month.

2.         Project Background

2.1               Background

2.1.1.        “Wan Chai Development phase II and Central-Wan Chai Bypass” and “Central-Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor Link” (hereafter called “the Project”) are Designed Project (DP) under the Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance (Cap. 499) (EIAO).  The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Reports for Central-Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor Link (Register No. AEIAR-041/2001) and Wan Chai Development phase II and Central-Wan Chai Bypass (Register No.: AEIAR-125/2008) have been approved on 31 August 2001 and 11 December 2008 respectively.

2.1.2.        The key purpose of Wan Chai Development Phase II (WDII) is to provide land at Wan Chai North and North Point for construction of the Central-Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor Link (CWB). Land formed under the project will be developed as a world-class waterfront promenade joining that at the new Central waterfront for public enjoyment.

2.1.3.        There is a compelling and present need for the CWB to provide relief to the very congested east-west Connaught Road Central/Harcourt Road / Gloucester Road Corridor (the Corridor) which is currently operating beyond its capacity. The CWB will provide relief to the existing congestion along the Corridor and cater for the anticipated growth of traffic on Hong Kong Island. Without the CWB and its access roads, there will not be sufficient capacity to serve the heavy traffic demands at both strategic and local levels.

 

2.2               Scope of the Project and Site Description

2.2.1.        The Project is located mainly in Wan Chai North, Causeway Bay and North Point, and is demarcated by Gloucester Road and Victoria Park Road to the south, Fenwick Pier Street to the west and Tong Shui Road Interchange to the east, as shown in Figure 2.1.

2.2.2.        The study area encompasses existing developments along the Wan Chai, Causeway Bay and North Point shorelines. Major land uses include the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) Extension, the Wan Chai Ferry Pier, the ex-Wan Chai Public Cargo Working Area (ex-PCWA), the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club (RHKYC), the Police Officers’ Club, the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter (CBTS) and commercial and residential developments.

2.2.3.        The scope of the Project comprises:

·          Land formation for key transport infrastructure and facilities, including the Trunk Road (i.e. CWB) and the associated slip roads for connection to the Trunk Road and for through traffic from Central to Wan Chai and Causeway Bay. The land formed for the above transport infrastructure will provide opportunities for the development of an attractive waterfront promenade for the enjoyment of the public

·          Reprovisioning / protection of the existing facilities and structures affected by the land formation works mentioned above

·          Extension, modification, reprovisioning or protection of existing storm water drainage outfalls, sewerage outfalls and watermains affected by the revised land use and land formation works mentioned above

·          Upgrading of hinterland storm water drainage system and sewerage system, which would be rendered insufficient by the land formation works mentioned above

·          Provision of the ground level roads, flyovers, footbridges, necessary transport facilities and the associated utility services

·          Construction of the new waterfront promenade, landscape works and the associated utility services

·          The Trunk Road (i.e. CWB) within the study area and the associated slip roads for connection to the Trunk Road.

 

2.2.4.        The project also contains various Schedule 2 DPs that, under the EIAO, require Environmental Permits (Eps) to be granted by the DEP before they may be either constructed or operated. Table 2.1 summarises the five individual DPs under this Project. Figure 2.1 shows the locations of these Schedule 2 DPs.

2.3               Division of the Project Responsibility

2.3.1.        Due to the multi-contract nature of the Project, there are a number of contracts sub-dividing the whole works area into different work areas to be commenced.  Contractors of individual contracts will be required by the EP holder to apply Further Environmental Permits (FEP) such that the impact monitoring stations are sub-divided accordingly to facilitate the implementation of EM&A programme and to streamline the EM&A reporting for individual FEP holders correspondingly.

2.3.2.        The details of individual contracts are summarized in Table 2.2.
