CMA5a: from 20 August 2012 to 21 August 2012

CMA6a: from 8 August 2012 to 9 August 2012

 

  1. Due to adverse weather condition, the 1-hr TSP monitoring at the following stations were rescheduled:

CMA2a: from 9 August 2012 to 11 August 2012

 

  1. Air quality monitoring has been conducted at stations CMA1b, CMA2a, CMA3a, CMA4a, CMA5a and CMA6a. No exceedance was recorded in the reporting month.
  2. The odour patrol along the odour route with 7 sniffing locations was conducted by a qualified odour patrol member on 13 and 23 August 2012 at the concerned hours (afternoon for higher daily temperature). No exceedance was recorded in this reporting period.

Water Quality Monitoring

  1. Due to the adverse weather condition (e.g. Amber Rainstorm signal or Strong wind signal No.3 or above) were hoisted on 11 and 17 August 2012, water quality monitoring at ebb tide were cancelled.
  2. WDII/RSS advised that the dredging works for submarine pipeline at Victoria Harbour had been completed in January 2012. Therefore, the concurrent dredging activities at Sewage Pipeline Zone and reclamation shoreline zone TCBR under the EP-356/2009 scenario 2B no longer exist. As such, with reference to Table 5.39 of the EIA Report for Wan Chai Development Phase II and Central-Wan Chai Bypass, the application of silt screen for cooling water intakes for Queensway Government Offices was suspended and the others were remains unchanged.
  3. Based on the joint inspection on 4 Jan 2012 for the NPR area, the 4-week water quality monitoring at WSD9, WSD10, WSD15, WSD17, C8, C9 to confirm no water deterioration with respect to NPR was commenced since 7 Jan 2012 and was completed on 6 Feb 2012 water quality monitoring.
  4. Water quality monitoring at WSD10 and WSD15 will be temporary suspended while water quality monitoring at WSD9 and WSD17 was implemented with respect to HK/2009/02 from 8 Feb 12 onwards;
  5. Water quality monitoring at C8 and C9 have been implemented with respect to HY/2009/19 since the marine bore piling work started on 28 Jan 12.
  6. Based on the safety concern when external façade refurbishment was conducted by contractor employed by Provident Centre (C9) between 9 January 2012 to 30 July 2012 which caused to the inaccessibility of sampling either land and marine since 3 Feb 2012, there is a fine adjustment of the sampling location of water quality monitoring at C9 since 10 March 2012 to the closest accessible point prior to the completion of the external façade refurbishment work.
  7. Due to the access of water monitoring station at WSD19 was blocked by LCSD construction works from 3 April 2012 to 2 May 2012 and lead to the inaccessibility of sampling either land and marine, there is a fine adjustment of the sampling point of WSD 19 since 5 April 2012 to the closest accessible point prior to the completion of the construction activities.
  8. Due to the dredging works for Cross Harbour Water Mains from Wan Chai to Tsim Sha Tsui- DP6 was completed on 26 March 2012, the temporary suspension of impact water quality monitoring at WSD7 and WSD20 after 27 April 2012 for the water quality monitoring at WSD7 and WSD20 have been monitored for 4-week period after the completion of DP6 to confirm no water deterioration.
  9. During the weekly site inspection for HY/2009/15 on 10 July 2012 and further inspection on 11 July 2012, it was found that the seawall blocks on the south side of TCBR1E (TS1) have been removed before all dredging works have been completed.  The contractor has immediately surrounded the seawall gap with silt curtains and stopped the relevant dredging works on 12 July 2012.  No action or limit level exceedance was found during the water quality monitoring on 9 or 11 July 2012.  The contractor has promised to provide double layer silt curtains and geotextile to act as temporary seawall and covered the sloping seawall with geotextile, and would provide a full incident report.  A self water quality monitoring was conducted on 15 July 2012 to indicate the effectiveness of the double silt curtain layers and would perform each time during dredging operations.  The results from the self water quality monitoring showed that the suspended solids, turbidity and dissolved oxygen level outside the double silt curtain layers were not affected by the dredging activities inside the silt curtain layers.
  10. Water quality monitoring at 14 monitoring stations was conducted three days per week during the reporting period. The action and limit level exceedances of water quality monitoring are summarized in Table I.

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.
