China - Hubei Yiba Highway Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 3) : Cave biodiversity study (English)

The objective of the Hubei Yiba Highway Project for China is to set out the legal and policy framework as well as applicable environmental standards with which the project will be compliance; and specify institutional roles and responsibilities for mitigation measures implementation and environmental management during project. Negative impacts include: ecology and soil and water conservation, water quality and hydrology works, noise pollution, air quality, waste management, disposal sites, and public health and safety. Mitigation measures include: (a) provide training to all workers before start of construction, For wildlife and plant protection with clear responsibility; (b) spoil soil will not be allowed to dispose randomly and all will be trucked to pre-selected, approved and control sites for disposal; (c) reclaim or reconstruct construction damaged irrigation and drainage system As soon as construction is complete; maintain construction machines to their best working conditions to keep the noise level low; (d) cover or wind control soil or powder material storage to minimize airborne dust; (e) hazardous waste or chemical waste will be properly stored, handled, and dispose of in accordance with the local legislative requirements. Hazardous waste will be stored at design location and warning sign will be posted; and (f) for the disposal sites near the residents, it is prohibited to construction at night, and water the sites for dust suppression at the operation time.
