Transportation Issues

Q1. How would this relocation works project affect the traffic of A Kung Kok Street? What mitigation measure would been implemented?
A1.

The consultant had reviewed work’s impact to the existing traffic load in A Kung Kok Street. A Kung Kok Street is a main route for many buses and mini-buses to/from Ma On Shan area. To reduce the traffic impact to this street during construction, the Construction Team have implemented the following mitigation measures:

  1. Construct temporary vehicular bridge across A Kung Kok Street for construction vehicles to reduce usage of A Kung Kok Street;
  2. Adopt Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) for the construction of the temporary vehicular bridge to reduce road closure period from 6 nights to 2 nights only;
  3. Dump truck would ingress/egress the site via the temporary site access at Ma On Shan Road and haul road inside site area; and
  4. Restrict the construction vehicles passing through A Kung Kok Street during peak hours in the morning and afternoon.
Q2. How would the temporary division of footpath and cycle track affect the cyclist?
A2. According to our survey, the existing cycle track was mainly utilised by cyclists passing between Chevalier Garden and A Kung Kok Street. And the temporary diversion works would not affect these cyclists much.

Environmental Issues

Q1. How is the progress of demolition of planter at roundabout of A Kung Kok Shan Road and the progress of strengthening noise mitigation measures?
A1. The demolition of planter at roundabout of A Kung Kok Shan Road was completed in Oct 2019. Road surface with asphalt and road markings had been paved at the original planter location. Hoardings with height of 3.5m and with sound absorptive panels had been installed at the site entrance next to the roundabout of A Kung Kok Shan Road to further reduce the noise impact from the site.
Q2. How to mitigate the construction noise issue?
A2.

Besides utilising quieter construction equipment, the Construction Team adopted the following noise control measures:

  1. Extend the hoarding height to 3.5m and install sound absorptive panels along the works area boundary near noise sensitive receivers;
  2. Movable noise barrier would be utilised to mitigate noise impact to nearby residents;
  3. Apply innovative technology to reduce impact. For example, the Construction Team had adopted Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) for the construction of the temporary vehicular bridge and shortened four nights operations to reduce noise impact.
Q3. Will the Stage 1 Works cause any odour issue from existing Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works?
A3. No. Stage 1 Works does not affect the operation of existing Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works, thus Stage 1 Works does not cause any odour issue arisen from existing Sha Tin Sewage Treatment Works.
Q4. What environmental protection measures are implemented in the Contract?
A4.

Environmental Team and Independent Environment Checker were appointed to inspect and monitor the air and noise level near our site. furthermore, the following mitigation measures were taken to promote environment protection:

Environment Management:

  1. Utilised Artificial Intelligence (AI) to monitor air, noise and humidity level. Auto spraying will be activated when the humidity level is lower than standard;
  2. Revised the location of temporary vehicular bridge to retain an existing camp site and related facilities to reduce construction waste. The site has been utilised as workplace rest area for workers;
  3. Adopted Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) for the construction of temporary vehicular bridge to shorten four-night operations and reduce noise impact.
  4. Adopted Modular Integrated Construction (MiC) for the construction of Community Liaison Centre (CLC), which improved material measurement and reduce wastage.

Upcycling of Waste:

  1. Tree trunks and leaves were upcycled to make timber furniture, stairways, brooms and fertilizers. Some products were donated to nearby communities; and
  2. Damaged water-filled barriers, plastic bottles and concrete structures were upcycled to plant some potted plants for beautifying community environment.

Renewable Energy:

  1. Utilise solar-powered fans and notice board;
  2. Trial Solar Photovoltaic Panels Street Light Post System; and
  3. Utilise solar-powered and wind-powered shoe cleaning machine.
