Brazil - Fortaleza Metropolitan Transport Project : resettlement plan (Vol. 3) : Relatorio do plano de reassentamento (Portuguese)

The Fortaleza Urban Transport Project was designed within the framework that the transport system is a key element for the development of the city's metropolitan region, and, assumes: 1) continuation of the right of way of those lines currently operated by the Brazilian Urban Train Company (CBTU), reducing the number of properties affected for resettlement; 2) maintenance of the metric gauge, to maximize the use of existing infrastructure; 3) upgrading of existing terminals/stations, to maximize their use, reducing potential number of affected properties; 4) changes in the radial setup of the Federal Railways Network S.A., into a single line, linking important locations through an underground segment line; 5) integration with other transportation modes. Although project design precludes massive expropriations, it is foreseen that involuntary resettlement will occur, particularly at construction points, such as viaducts, new stations, etc., and specifically, resulting from the construction of the subway western line. A survey was conducted, to promote consultation with affected populations, and ensure the following mitigating measures: resettlement will be minimized as possible, aiming at maintaining, or recovering living conditions, through household reconstruction, to uphold community ties, and productive capacity. Compensation will be assured for all potential losses.
