Nepal - Road Sector Development Project (Vol. 3) : Site specific environmental management action plan : Satbanjh - Jhulaghat road (English)

The objective of the Nepal Road Sector Development Project is for residents of beneficiary districts to utilize all-season road access to economic centers and social services. The project targets seven hill districts which currently have no all-season road access. The road construction and rehabilitation proposed under the current program will not have any major environmental and social impacts, as most (with the exception of the 88km Nagma-Gamghadi Road, accessing Mugu District) involve only the upgrading or improvement of existing roads. Some potential environmental concerns include poor drainage conditions in the Terai and unstable slopes in some areas in the hills, and subsequently some adverse effects on local forest and agricultural lands. The mitigating measures outlined in this report are of preventive in nature with two basic objectives: avoiding costly mitigation; and awareness among the stakeholders for environment protection while constructing and operating infrastructure services. These measures include route selection, detailed survey and design, coping with erosion and destabilized slopes, precaution measures during slope cutting activities, avoiding hazards due to unsafe spoil disposal, avoiding water pollution, and addressing risks associated with stone crushing plants.
