Section 10 Conclusion

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.        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.

Noise Monitoring Parameters, Frequency and Duration

4.1.3.        The construction noise level shall be measured in terms of the A-weighted equivalent continuous sound pressure level (Leq). Leq (30 minutes) shall be used as the monitoring parameter for the time period between 0700 and 1900 hours on normal weekdays. For all other time periods, Leq (5 minutes) shall be employed for comparison with the Noise Control Ordinance (NCO) criteria. Supplementary information for data auditing, statistical results such as L10 and L90 shall also be obtained for reference.

4.1.4.        Noise monitoring shall be carried out at all the designated monitoring stations. The monitoring frequency shall depend on the scale of the construction activities. The following is an initial guide on the regular monitoring frequency for each station on a weekly basis when noise generating activities are underway:

          One set of measurements between 0700 and 1900 hours on normal weekdays.

4.1.5.        Real time noise shall be carried out at the designated monitoring stations. The following is an initial guide on the regular monitoring frequency for each station on a 24 hours daily basis when noise generating activities are underway:

          One set of measurements between 0700 and 1900 hours on normal weekdays.

          One set of measurements between 1900 and 2300 hours on normal weekdays and 0700 and 2300 hours on public holidays.

          One set of measurements between 2300 and 0700 hours on next day on everyday.

4.1.6.        If construction works are extended to include works during the hours of 1900 0700 as well as public holidays and Sundays, additional weekly impact monitoring shall be carried out during respective restricted hours periods. Applicable permits under NCO shall be obtained by the Contractor.

Monitoring Equipment

4.1.7.        As referred to in the Technical Memorandum issued under the NCO, sound level meters in compliance with the International Electrotechnical Commission Publications 651: 1979 (Type 1) and 804: 1985 (Type 1) specifications shall be used for carrying out the noise monitoring. Immediately prior to and following each noise measurement the accuracy of the sound level meter shall be checked using an acoustic calibrator generating a known sound pressure level at a known frequency. Measurements may be accepted as valid only if the calibration level from before and after the noise measurement agree to within 1.0 dB.

4.1.8.        Noise measurements shall not be made in fog, rain, wind with a steady speed exceeding 5 m/s or wind with gusts exceeding 10 m/s. The wind speed shall be checked with a portable wind speed meter capable of measuring the wind speed in m/s.

4.1.9.        The sound level meter shall be checked using an acoustic calibrator generating a known sound pressure level at a known frequency before deployment to the site and during each site visit. Measurements may be accepted as valid only if the calibration level from before and after the noise measurement agree to within 1.0 dB.

Air Monitoring Parameters, Frequency and Duration

4.2.2.        One-hour and 24-hour TSP levels should be measured to indicate the impacts of construction dust on air quality. The 24-hour TSP levels shall be measured by following the standard high volume sampling method as set out in the Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter 1 (Part 50), Appendix B.

4.2.3.        All relevant data including temperature, pressure, weather conditions, elapsed-time meter reading for the start and stop of the sampler, identification and weight of the filter paper, and any other local atmospheric factors affecting or affected by site conditions, etc., shall be recorded down in detail.

4.2.4.        For regular impact monitoring, the sampling frequency of at least once in every six-days, shall be strictly observed at all the monitoring stations for 24-hour TSP monitoring. For 1-hour TSP monitoring, the sampling frequency of at least three times in every six-days should be undertaken when the highest dust impact occurs.

Sampling Procedure and Monitoring Equipment

4.2.5.        High volume samplers (HVSs) in compliance with the following specifications shall be used for carrying out the 1-hour and 24-hour TSP monitoring:

          0.6 - 1.7 m3 per minute adjustable flow range;

          Equipped with a timing / control device with +/- 5 minutes accuracy for 24 hours operation;

          Installed with elapsed-time meter with +/- 2 minutes accuracy for 24 hours operation;

          Capable of providing a minimum exposed area of 406 cm2;

          Flow control accuracy: +/- 2.5% deviation over 24-hour sampling period;

          Equipped with a shelter to protect the filter and sampler;

          Incorporated with an electronic mass flow rate controller or other equivalent devices;

          Equipped with a flow recorder for continuous monitoring;

          Provided with a peaked roof inlet;

          Incorporated with a manometer;

          Able to hold and seal the filter paper to the sampler housing at horizontal position;
