Complaints, Notifications of Summons and Successful Prosecutions

  1. Two environmental complaints were received in the reporting month.

 

  1. First public complaint referred by EPD was received by ET on 16 January 2017 (Case Ref.: H08/RS/00001175-17). The complainant reported that construction work at the reclamation site in Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter area (Under the Island Eastern Corridor) was found after 1900hrs on 10 January 2017. The complainant reported that there were 3 concrete pumps and around 10 concrete lorry mixers operating at the above site during the said period which may not comply with the Construction Noise Permit.  

 

ET confirmed with the Resident Site Staff that concreting of tunnel structure was conducted under Contract HY/2010/08 at Temporary Reclamation Area TS3 between 1900hrs and 2000hrs on 10 January 2017.

Total 3 nos. of Lorry Mounted Concrete Pumps and 6 nos. of Concrete Lorry Mixers were operated at TS3 while temporary noise barrier was provided for 2 nos. of the operating Lorry Mounted Concrete Pumps and 4 nos. of the operating Concrete Lorry Mixers. Total 1 no. of Concrete Lorry Mixer was at stand-by within TS3 Works area. 

Concreting of tunnel structure was conducted under Contract HY/2010/08 at Temporary Reclamation Area TS3 between 2000hrs and 2030hrs 10 January 2017.Total 2 nos. of Lorry Mounted Concrete Pump and 4 nos. of Concrete Lorry Mixers were operated at TS3 while temporary noise barrier was provided for 1 no. of the operating Lorry Mounted Concrete Pumps and 2 nos. of the operating Concrete Lorry Mixers. Total 1 no. of Concrete Lorry Mixer was at stand-by within TS3 Works area. 

 

Concreting of tunnel structure was conducted under Contract HY/2010/08 at Temporary Reclamation Area TS3 between 2030hrs and 2300hrs 10 January 2017. Total 1 no. of Lorry Mounted Concrete Pump and 2 nos. of Concrete Lorry Mixers were operated at TS3.

Based on the site records confirmed by RSS, concreting of tunnel structure was conducted under Contract HY/2010/08 at Temporary Reclamation Area TS3 between 1900hrs and 2300hrs on 10 January 2017. From 1900hrs to 2000hrs, total 3 nos. of Lorry Mounted Concrete Pumps and 6 nos. of Concrete Lorry Mixers while temporary noise barrier was provided for 2 nos. of the operating Lorry Mounted Concrete Pumps and 4 nos. of the operating Concrete Lorry Mixers. Total 1 no. of Concrete Lorry Mixer was at stand-by within TS3 Works area.

 

From 2000hrs to 2030hrs, total 2 nos. of Lorry Mounted Concrete Pump and 4 nos. of Concrete Lorry Mixers were operated at TS3 while temporary noise barrier was provided for 1 no. of the operating Lorry Mounted Concrete Pumps and 2 nos. of the operating Concrete Lorry Mixers. Total 1 no. of Concrete Lorry Mixer was at stand-by within TS3 Works area.

From 2030hrs to 2300hrs, total 1 no. of Lorry Mounted Concrete Pump and 2 nos. of Concrete Lorry Mixers were operated at TS3.

 

Relevant Construction Noise Permit GW-RS1232-16 (Corresponding PME Groups operated include Group M, Group K and Group H) was in place for the construction works conducted during the above concerned periods and based on RSS information, a designated personnel on-site was responsible for controlling and supervising the switching between PME Groups. Meanwhile, there is no sufficient information to conclude if the concerned PME(s) (Concrete Lorry Mixer and Lorry Mounted Concrete Pump) deployed behind the temporary noise barrier provided were not visible to nearby sensitive receivers.

 

As multiple PME grouping under the Construction Noise Permit are involved, the Contractor of HY/2010/08 was reminded to strictly follow the site control system for construction works carried out during restricted hours to ensure the PMEs deployed are in strict compliance with relevant Construction Noise Permit. The Contractor of HY/2010/08 was also reminded to maintain regular maintenance of the plant and equipment deployed to avoid potential nuisance to the nearby public.

 

  1. Second public complaint regarding the subject matter on wheel washing referred by RSS was received by ET on 18 January 2017 (ICC Ref: #2-3218844776). The complainant reported that no wheel washing from CEDD work site, no supervision from the Resident Site Staff, mud was dispersed on the road and flush to the communal drain by Chun Wo-China Railway JV HK/2009/02.

 

ET confirmed with the Resident Site Staff that the concerned location was Site Exit Gate No. 6 at Expo Drive East operated and maintained under HK/2009/02 on 22 December 2016. Site measures including provision of wheel washing facility was implemented by the Contractor of HK/2009/02 on the concerned date.

 

According to information provided by RSS, the concerned location was Site Exit Gate No. 6 at Expo Drive East operated and maintained under HK/2009/02 on 22 December 2016. In view of the environmental concern, remedial measures including i) instructing all workers to conduct wheel washing within the designated location with collection pit to prevent overflow of washing effluent and ii) manual removal of dirt/silt by worker instead of water flushing in case of dirt/muddy trail found on road were implemented by the Contractor on 28 December 2016. Also, the Contractor of HK/2009/02 was further reminded by the WDII RSS to maintain proper wheel washing facilities at Gate No.6 and inspect regularly to ensure that all vehicles leaving the site to public roads are free of mud.

 

Nevertheless, the Environmental Team further reminded the Contractor on 04 January 2017 that site measures including i) wheel washing operation shall be conducted at the designated location behind the backfall to avoid overflow of washing effluent onto public road ii) any silt/ soil deposited of the public road shall be cleared manually shall be strictly followed and relevant remedial actions were taken by the Contractor of HK/2009/02 on 04 January 2017.

According to site inspection conducted on 17 January 2017, the concerned site exit Gate No.6 was maintained in proper condition, no silt/ mud deposition was observed on the public road and wheel washing was conducted by the Contractor of HK/2009/02 at the designated location within the construction site to avoid overflow of washing effluent onto nearby public road.

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 Designated 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.     Design and Construction of Central – Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor Link under the Project involves the construction and operation of a trunk road and its road tunnel more than 800m in length between portals that is shown at Figure 2.1.

2.2.2.     The study area encompasses existing developments from Central to North Point. The scope of the Central-Wanchai Bypass (CWB) and Island Eastern Corridor Link (IECL) includes:

·      A dual three-lane trunk road, approximately 4.5 km in length, and tunnel approximately 3.7 km in length defined from the connection with the existing Rumsey Street Flyover in Central, through to a connection with the existing Island Eastern Corridor to the east of the Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter (CBTS);

·      The Central Interchange near the Rumsey Street Flyover to provide road connections to the Central area;

·      Tunnel control buildings and ventilation buildings;

·      Slip roads to connect the CWB to the local road system in the Wan Chai North and Causeway Bay area;

·      Associated road lighting, road signing, traffic control and surveillance system; and

·      Other associated works.

 

2.2.3.     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 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.
