Any person relying on this permit should obtain independent legal advice on the legal implications under the Ordinance, and the following notes are for general information only.

本許可證共有3部,即A(許可證主要部分)B(指定工程項目的說明)C(許可證條件)。任何援引本許可證的人士須就條例的法律含意徵詢獨立法律意見,下述註解只供一般參考之用。

 

2.              If there is a breach of any conditions of this Permit, the Director or his authorized officer may, with the consent of the Secretary for the Environment, order the cessation of associated work until the remedial action is taken in respect of the resultant environmental damage, and in that case the Permit Holder shall not carry out any associated works without the permission of the Director or his authorized officer.

如違反本許可證的任何條件,署長或獲授權人員在徵得環境局局長的同意後,可勒令停止相關工程,直至許可證持有人為所造成的環境損害採取補救行動為止。在此情況下,許可證持有人在未經署長或獲其授權人員同意,不得進行任何相關工程。

 

3.              The Permit Holder may apply under Section 13 of the Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance (the “Ordinance”) to the Director for a variation of the conditions of this Permit.  The Permit Holder shall replace the original permit displayed on the Project site by the amended permit.

Appendix A

Measures to Mitigate Environmental Impacts from Site Runoff and Drainage during Operation

附錄A

緩解營運期間,徑流及排水環境影響的措施

 

To mitigate the environmental impacts from site runoff and drainage during the operational phase, the following shall be implemented:

應實施下列措施,以緩解營運期內因地盤徑流及排水造成的環境影響:

 

(a)      A surface water drainage system shall be provided to collect the track runoff.  Where oil and lubricating fluids can be spilt, the tract drainage channels discharge shall pass through oil/grit interceptors/chambers, or a sub-soil drainage system to remove oil, grease and sediment before being pumped to the public stormwater drainage system.

應提供地面水排水系統以收集鐵軌徑流。在油污及潤滑液可能出現外溢的地方,鐵軌排水渠排出的污水應在泵入公共雨水排水系統前,流經油污/砂礫截流井/池,或地下排水系統,以清除油污、油脂及沉積物。

 

(b)      Silt traps and oil interceptors shall be cleaned and maintained regularly to ensure proper functioning and efficient operation.

淤泥收集器及油污截流井應定期清潔及保養,以確保正常操作及效率。

 

(c)      Oily contents of the oil interceptors shall be transferred to an appropriate disposal facility, or to be collected for reuse, if possible.

油污截流井內收集的油污應轉移到適當的處置設施或在可能時回收利用。
