Vietnam - Road Safety Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 2) : Environmental management plan for engineering works (English)

The Environmental Mitigation Plan for the Road Safety Project for Vietnam proposes to include requirements in bid and contract documents to mitigate impacts in the following five areas: Materials supply (indirect impacts); soils; hydrology; air quality; and noise. Mitigations will specify using only existing authorized borrow pits, licensed quarries, and licensed hot-mix asphalt plants; appropriate air pollution control equipment; supervision to ensure minimal soil loss for agricultural production; limiting side slope angles; using less erode-able materials; lined-down drains to prevent erosion; stabilizing embankments; revegetation; trenching; seeding with rapid growing seed mix; installing adequately sized drainage channels; liaisoning with local land-use planning authorities; avoiding adverse water quality impacts through adequate supervision; watering for dust control; banning open burning; discontinuing construction under unfavorable conditions; using equipment to suppress noise; locating equipment away from sensitive areas; and site-specific time constraints. The report anticipates no significant adverse impacts to air quality during operations.
