  1. A public complaint regarding visual impact referred by RSS was received by ET on 29 September 2014 (ICC Case Ref.: 2-466911619 dated 26 September 2014).

 

  1. The complainant reported that on 26 September 2014 at around 00:50hrs, light originating from the flyover under Central-WanChai Bypass Project was emitted towards City Garden direction and caused light nuisance.

 

  1. According to the relevant information provided by RSS, the light emission on 25 and 26 September 2014 at the concerned location was originated from the temporary lighting provided at the soffit of the permanent noise enclosure at the new Island Eastern Corridor Eastbound.

 

  1. The lighting was necessary to provide sufficient illumination for the traffic operation on the new IEC Eastbound after traffic diversion on 28 September 2014. Nevertheless, in view of the public concern regarding light nuisance raised by the public, it is considered desirable for the Contractor to review the lighting arrangement and implement additional measures to minimize the nuisance caused to the surrounding receivers as far as practicable.

 

  1. Follow-up inspection was conducted during weekly environmental inspection on 8 October 2014, additional measures including erection of green net and tarpaulin sheet were provided by the Contractor of HY/2009/19 at the concerned area as interim measure to minimize the nuisance cased to the surroundings. Further to the interim measure implemented by the Contractor of HY/2009/19, the Contractor of HY/2009/19 will replace the concerned temporary lighting with temporary lighting facing Victoria Harbour at the other side of the road to minimize the light nuisance to the surroundings.

 

  1. A public complaint regarding visual impact referred by RSS was received by ET on 6 October 2014 (ICC Case Ref.: 2-469099657 dated 26 September 2014).

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.
