Brazil - Sao Paulo Metro Line 5 Project : executive summary of the environmental assessment and resettlement action plan (English)

This is the executive summary of the main documents prepared for the Sao Paulo Metro to comply with the environmental safeguards procedures for the construction of the Largo Treze-Chacara Klabin extension of its Line 5 subway. The extension from 'Largo Treze' station to 'Chacara Klabin' station is divided in two segments: a) the Largo Treze to Adolfo Pinheiro segment of about 636 m, including the Adolfo Pinheiro station which is expected to start operations in March 2010; and b) the Adolfo Pinheiro station to Chicara Klabin station segment, with expected start of operation in December 2012, extending 11.12 km and including 10 stations: Alto da Boa Vista, Borba Gato, Brooklin-Campo Belo, Agua Espraiada, Ibirapuera, Moema, Servidor, Vila Clementino, Santa Cruz and Chdcara Klabin and the Guido Caloi yard. The route for Line 5 was based on guidelines established by the preliminary feasibility studies and other criteria, such as: a) regional characteristics, b) demand studies, c) public transport reorganization; and, d) technical constraints. Four alternatives were developed. The recommended alternative was the one with the integration of Line 5 to Line 1 a t Santa Cruz station, and integration with Line 2 at Chacara Klabin station. This alternative allows for the distribution of high number of potential passengers between the two stations and therefore, minimizes potential overloading at one station. This route also avoids concentration of three subway lines at one single place and meets demands from Vila Clementino. This design guideline was incorporated by Metro in the line 2 extension project until Sacoma and also incorporated by the Secretary of Metropolitan Transport in the Integrated Urban Transport Plan for 2020.
