Nigeria - Second Phase of the Lagos Urban Transport Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 4) : Environmental and social impact assessment for the construction of the mile 12 (Kosofe Local Government Area) to Ikorodu town (Ikorodu West Local Government Area) bus rapid transit (BRT) route (English)

The objective of the Second Phase of the Lagos Urban Transport Project (LUTP 2) for Nigeria is to improve the capacity to manage the transport sector in the Lagos metropolitan area and to enhance the efficiency of the public transport network. Negative impacts include: traffic disruption; air pollution; soil pollution; noise and vibration; vegetation and wildlife; climate and meteorology; and surface and groundwater. Mitigation measures include: 1) provision of carefully planned diversion routes during construction and use of signboards and other public information mechanism to the public in advance of construction work; 2) facilitating the use of cleaner fuels and the use of compressed gas; 3) banning the importation of over-aged vehicles; 4) minimizing the area of ground clearance along the construction corridor; 5) guidelines for transport of hazardous substances defining permissible routes; 6) using clean fill materials around watercourses such as quarried rock containing no fine soil; 7) providing reservations/buffer zones of undisturbed vegetation between road sites and water bodies; 8) avoiding environmentally sensitive areas to prevent severe impacts on flora and fauna; 9) as much as possible, all open soil surfaces shall be regularly sprinkled with water to reduce dust and particulate generation; and 10) as much as possible, site illumination shall be limited to areas where work are going on, so as to minimize impact on photo-periodism of plants in the area.
