Brazil - Projeto de Transporte Urbano do Sao Paulo : estudo de impacto ambiental : Estudo de impacto ambiental - complementacao de informacoes - Linha 4 Amarela (Portuguese)

This is the environmental assessment (EA) for the Sao Paulo Integrated Urban Transport Project, addressing in particular the potential environmental adversity resulting from the construction of the subway's Yellow Line, segment Paulista-Luz. Environmental impacts, and mitigating measures are described as follows. During construction, noise, dust, and light pollution, vibration, and traffic disruption will occur. In addition, spoil arising from excavation will need to be disposed, or reused. Mitigating measures assume: water effluents, and sludge should be treated according to environmental and waste disposal regulations, taking into account local cadastre regulations, while demolition will follow the engineering technical specifications; provisions regarding traffic safety, include preliminary, and/or final detours, adequate traffic signaling, and traffic safety measures, as well as the installation of protective barriers; noise abatement measures include the installation of sound barriers, and work schedules, to be limited to daytime only; landscaping, and vegetation will be actively pursued, or restored as necessary; and, community consultation will be ensured. Social aspects, though briefly addressed in this EA, are discussed at large in the Resettlement Action Plan.
