Kyrgyz Republic - National Road Rehabilitation (Osh-Isfana) Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 2) : Environmental impact assessment (English)

The objective of the National Road Rehabilitation (Osh-Isfana) Project for the Kyrgyz Republic is to restore reliable access to Batken oblast and provide an alternative transport route for potential transit traffic to/from Tajikistan. Negative impacts include: accidental discovery of physical/heritage resources; soil erosion, land slide or rock fall; air pollution from dust or exhaust emissions; interference with existing infrastructure (telecomm. or electricity etc); noise emissions from construction equipment; waste disposal problems from solid waste generated during construction activity or wastes generated in construction camps; traffic; dust; and air quality. Mitigation measures include: 1) install speed limits and warning signs in areas of difficult driving conditions; 2) undertake progressive re-vegetation of cleared areas; 3) avoid clearing activities during the rainy season where possible; 4) ensure construction plant are maintained in good condition and any leaks are quickly repaired; 5) ensure all construction vehicles and equipment are well maintained; 6) as far as possible limit noisy construction activities to day time hours in the vicinity of houses and hospitals and to night time hours in the vicinity of schools; 7) reinstate good quality permanent access to affected properties on completion of construction works; 8) train construction workers in appropriate waste disposal methods; 9) implement landscaping along the roadside to reduce dust impacts; and 10) ensure road drainage systems are well maintained and free of blockages.
