India - Amaravati Sustainable Capital City Development Project : Environmental Assessment : Environmental Assessment and Environmental Management Plan for 10 Priority Roads (English)

The objective of the Amaravati Sustainable Capital City Development Project for India is to develop an environmental management plan (EMP) for the identified flood mitigation works in the Amaravati Capital City. The study has been carried out duly following MoEF guidelines and World Bank guidelines. The scope of EIA considers the applicable regulatory compliance requirements of Capital City Environmental Clearance and the Judgement of National Green Tribunal. Some of the negative impacts and mitigation measures include: construction operations should be undertaken primarily to day time, i.e. 6:00 am-10:00 pm only to minimize noise impacts; the excavators should be equipped with the noise reduction/masking equipment to reduce the noise generation inside and outside water. Noise from equipment can be reduced at source by isolation of exhaust system, by keeping engine room doors shut and by shielding; equipment’s to be used for construction work shall be hand held tools with restricted use of pneumatic tools; clearing and uprooting should be avoided beyond that which is directly required for construction activities; contractors should recruit the local people as laborers at least for unskilled and semi-skilled jobs; hygiene and basic facilities should be ensured at labor camp to prevent the spread of disease; labor camp should be equipped with adequate number of Indian style of toilets with running water facility and connected to septic tanks; no asbestos containing materials should be used for construction. Construction material should preferably be certified green materials; provision must be made for washing areas. Soak pits and other measures to prevent stagnation of water must be made; adequate space, ventilation and privacy is mandatory; and adequate waste management measures to be implemented.
