The Road Asset Management Project are to assist the Government of Yemen (GOY) in: (i) improving condition and safety of existing paved road infrastructure in 3-4 governorates, and (ii) putting in place institutional arrangements for efficient routine and emergency maintenance of paved roads in Yemen. Negative impacts include: waste management; landslides, soil erosion, and visual intrusion; traffic; air quality; noise; water supply; drainage; and fauna and flora. Mitigation measures include: 1) proper solid waste disposal or liquid waste recycling at designated permitted sites, periodic inspection of road works, and periodic inspection of equipment maintenance; 2) ensure that populated areas are protected from landslides, where feasible, provision of an open area 1m wide, behind cut side channels, to accommodate fallen debris which must be cleaned, where feasible, increase the mass thickness of the rock fill to provide additional resistance to stability, provision of adequate drainage systems, planting trees in sensitive zones, where feasible, and restoration of vegetative cover, where feasible; 3) informing the public about schedule of maintenance, and provision of alternative access roads/by-passes where feasible traffic management, and ensure traffic safety; 4) usage of well-maintained equipment, and water spraying for dust control; 5) usage of quiet/well-maintained equipment, usage of operational noise mufflers, limiting noisy activities to normal daylight hours, provision of speed limit signs at critical locations, and planting trees in sensitive zones, where feasible; 6) protecting water supply systems, and coordination with land owners on scheduling maintenance activities; 7) side sloping the road to prevent the accumulation of water on the road surface, re-vegetation of disturbed soils, and periodic cleaning and maintenance of ditches and culverts; and 8) placing speed limit signs and planting trees at critical locations and known animal crossing pathways, and periodic cleaning and maintenance of culverts to facilitate amphibians crossing.
