Nepal - Additional Financing for the Road Sector Development Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 11) : Study report for upgrading of Manma to Jumla (English)

The objective of the Additional Financing for the Road Sector Development Project for Nepal is for the residents of beneficiary districts to have all season road access thereby reducing travel time to economic centers. Negative measures include: air quality, soil erosion, waste management, noise pollution, and wildlife. Mitigation measures include: a) district forest office and its subsidiary body should be involved in monitoring the activities of the construction workers and officials to forbid wildlife harassing, trapping, poaching, and trading; b) cross drainage outlets must be channeled to confirmed natural drains; c) enforce speed limit of vehicles and construct the road according to volume and size of traffic movement; and d) outlet of these structures will be carrying the concentrated run off flow of the respective catchment, which will be quite high during rainy season, which in turn requires proper planning of drainage system.
