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 June 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.        In the reporting month, advance piling work at FEHD Whitfield Depot under Contract no. HY/2009/17 was commenced on 5 October 2010 and pending to construct one pile cap. In addition, Central - Wan Chai Bypass (CWB) – Central Interchange was ciommenced on 21 April 2011. Moreover, Central - Wanchai Bypass Tunnel (North Point Section) and Island Eastern Corridor Link under HY2009/19 was commenced on 24 April 2011 Finally, Wan Chai Development Phase II - Central - Wan Chai Bypass at Wan Chai East(CWB Tunnel) was commenced on 26 April 2011.
