Complaints, Notifications of Summons and Successful Prosecutions

  1. Two environmental complaints under FEP-05/364/2009/B were received in the reporting period.
  2. A public complaint regarding water quality impact referred by RSS was received by ET on 17 December 2013 (ICC Case Ref.: 1-484998552 dated 17 December 2013). The complainant reported that workers of construction site HY/2010/08 were sweeping muddy water into the rain water drain and concerned about resulting pollution of habour. The complainant further follow-up and reported on 19 Dec 2013 that sandbags were placed out in the public area around the drain, these bags were outside of the site area and all preventive measures should have been carried out within the site. ET confirmed with the Resident Site Staff that the major construction activities around the concerned location conducted on 16 Dec 2013 a.m. include preparation work of root ball for tree transplanting.

 

According to the information provided by RSS, the construction activities around the concerned location on 16 Dec 2013 include preparation work of root ball for tree transplanting at Zone 17/18.

 

A further investigation on the complaint was conducted on 19 Dec 2013 during weekly environmental inspection. It was observed that a tree works area comprised of mainly loosen

soil was located near the concerned location. It was considered that the inclined surface and

loosen soil nature of the concerned works area could have led to the muddy surface runoff in rain. Deposition of muddy runoff onto nearby public pavement outside works area was hence resulted and was subsequently cleaned into nearby public stormwater drain by the ContractoríŽs workers on the complaint date. As such, the case was considered as works related. Sandbags, geotextile and gravels were immediately placed by the Contractor around the gullies at the concerned location to prevent leftover muddy runoff to the public stormwater drain as observed during the weekly inspection on 19 Dec 2013.

 

With respect to the follow-up raised by the complainant on 19 Dec 2013, sandbags, geotextile and gravels placed at gullies located at public area were removed by the Contractor on the same day for maintaining passable public pavement. Follow up measures including sandbag bundle and covering of works area with impervious sheeting was immediately placed at the source of impact at the concerned works area boundary by the Contractor.

 

  1. A public complaint regarding air quality impact referred by RSS was received by ET on 24 December 2013 (ICC Case Ref.: 1-486434321 dated 24 December 2013). The complainant reported that the equipment used at the construction area next to Victoria Park Children Playground has generated a strong odour and large amount of dust particles which affect the public user of the Victoria Park. Upon further inquiry by ICC operator, the complainant further supplemented on 31 Dec 2013 that, he was annoyed by the smell and exhaust fumes emitted from machines/tools as well as dusty particles in the vicinity when he was sitting next to the toilet and Children Playground on the complaint date at about 1140 hrs.

 

ET confirmed with the Resident Site Staff that the major construction activities around the concerned location conducted on 24 Dec 2013 include breaking up existing pillar box for new children playground Portion II, pressing of sheet pile at bowling green for ELS works Portion XII, welding work for preparation of sheet piling work at bowling green Portion VI, Demolition of existing pavilion for bowling green Portion VI and felling of tree TA50 at Victoria Park Zone 13. Mitigation measures implemented by the Contractor for the above construction works include water spraying for demolition and other dust generating works.

 

According to the relevant site records, breaking up of existing pillar box, pressing of sheet pile, welding work for preparation of sheet piling, demolition of existing pavilion and felling of tree TA50 at Victoria Park Zone 13 were conducted at the concerned location during the time of complaint. Based on information and photo record provided by the RSS, dust mitigation measures including water spraying during dust generating works were implemented by the Contractor at the concerned location on 24 Dec 2013.

Follow-up investigation was conducted on 27 Dec 2013 during weekly environmental inspection, dust mitigation measures including water spraying to dusty area and major dust generation works were confirmed in place despite a general reminder was given to the contractor to enhance the water spraying to dusty haul road during dry season. Based on on-going site inspection and the follow-up investigation, the site condition was considered generally satisfactory and no non-conformance was identified.

 

Upon further review on the supplementary information provided by the complainant on 31 Dec 2013 and investigation conducted on 2 Jan 2014, the tree felling work of tree TA50 was located nearest to the location of the complainant. According to the location plan provided by the RSS and on site investigation, the tree felling work for TA50 was immediately in front of the location of the complainant. Based on site observation, scrap material of bark and leaves inevitably generated from cutting of branches during tree felling work was considered to be the most probable cause for the observation raised by the complainant at the concerned location on 24 Dec 2013.Furthermore, welding work was observed near the concerned location and was considered to be the potential source for the smell and exhaust fumes as described by the complainant. Notwithstanding the above, welding work was not identified as a work activity with air quality impact under Project EIA report but it would be desirable to implement preventive measures to minimize potential nuisance to nearby public.

 

Site Inspections and Audit

  1. The Environmental Team (ET) conducted weekly site inspections for Contract no. HY/2009/15, HY/2009/18, HY/2009/19, HY/2010/08, HK/2009/01, HK/2009/02, HK/2012/08 and HK/2010/06 in this reporting period. Construction of bored pile E3B under HY/2009/17 was confirmed completed and the respective work area under FEP was inspected under HY/2009/19 from 19 Dec 2012 onwards. The Contractors rectified major observations and recommendations made during the audit sessions. No non-conformance was identified during the site inspections.

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.
