  8. Follow up inspection was conducted on 16 April 2015 during weekly environmental inspection and mitigation measures including water spraying for dusty haul road and provision of wheel washing were in place. The construction site exit was observed clear from residue silt / grit at the concerned location.
  9. In view of the public concern, the contractor was advised to conduct training to the construction site workers to enhance the effectiveness of wheel washing and to ensure proper wheel washing is provided for dump truck and other vehicle prior to leaving the construction site to avoid generating any dust nuisance.

 

  1. Second public complaint regarding construction noise impact referred by EPD was received by ET on 09 April 2015 (EPD Ref.:H05/RS/00007861-15 dated 9 April 2015).

2      Project Background

2.1          Background

2.1.1.     ížWan Chai Development phase II and Central-Wan Chai BypassíĘ and ížCentral-Wan Chai Bypass and Island Eastern Corridor LinkíĘ (hereafter called ížthe ProjectíĘ) 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 íV 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:

íP      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);

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

íP      Tunnel control buildings and ventilation buildings;

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

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

íP      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.

2.3.2.     The details of individual contracts are summarized in Table2.2.
