Brazil - Fortaleza Metropolitan Transport Project : environmental assessment (Vol. 3) : Plano de gestao ambiental - linha oeste (complementacao) (Portuguese)

This environmental assessment (EA) aims at minimizing negative environmental impacts, as a result of the Fortaleza Urban Transport Project, which include construction of access roads, transport corridors, as well as traffic management. However, the report specifically addresses the potential impacts resulting from the construction of the underground subway western line, under the responsibility of Metrofor (Companhia Cearense de Transportes Metropolitanos). It comprises six volumes, i.e., the environmental procedures manual for civil works, the environmental management plan, and annex, studies on urban impacts, progress report, and implementation guidelines. 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 regulations, and, waste disposal collected by the municipal collector agency (EMLURB); provisions regarding safety, call for adequate traffic signaling, and traffic safety measures, and includes the installation of protective barriers; noise abatement measures include construction of sound barriers, and work schedules to be limited to daytime only; landscaping, and vegetation will be actively restored; and, consultation with the community will be pursued.
