The purpose of this Environmental Monitoring and Audit (EM&A) Manual (hereafter referred to as the Manual) is to guide the setup of an EM&A programme to ensure compliance with the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study recommendations, to assess the effectiveness of the recommended mitigation measures and to identify any further need for additional mitigation measures or remedial action. This Manual outlines the monitoring and audit programme proposed for the “Liantang / Heung Yuen Wai Boundary Control Point and Associated Works (LT/HYW)” (The Project).
It should be noted that this EM&A Manual would be further reviewed and updated where necessary.
There are currently four existing boundary
control points (BCPs) that provide vehicular crossing at the
It is anticipated that the volume of cross-boundary traffic will continue to increase with the closer ties of Hong Kong-Shenzhen and the completion of the planned Eastern Corridor in Shenzhen. Therefore, it was identified necessary to establish a new BCP in the eastern part of Hong Kong-Shenzhen boundary to meet the future traffic demand and re-distribute cross-boundary traffic amongst the crossings in the east.
In December 2006, the Hong Kong Government and the Shenzhen Government jointly commissioned a study entitled “Preliminary Planning Study on Developing Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai Control Point” (hereafter referred to as “the Joint Study”) to examine the need, benefit and function of a new BCP at LT/HYW. The Joint Study confirmed the need for a new BCP at LT/HYW.
In January 2007, the Planning Department commissioned a consultancy study entitled “Planning Study on Liantang/Heung Yuen Wai Cross-boundary Control Point and its Associated Connecting Roads in Hong Kong – Feasibility Study” (hereafter referred to as “the Feasibility Study”) to examine the land, planning, traffic and engineering implications and its associated connecting road within Hong Kong territory for the LT/HYW BCP. With evaluation of a number of alternative options, the Feasibility Study (FS) put forward a preferred layout of the LT/HYW BCP and preferred alignment of the LT/HYW BCP connecting road.
On 18 September 2008, at the second meeting of the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Joint Task Force on Boundary District Development, the two Governments endorsed the major findings of the Joint Study and jointly announced to implement the LT/HYW BCP after the meeting on the following basis:
The LT/HYW BCP would adopt the separate-location
model but design of the BCP should maximize convenience to users including the
construction of an integrated passenger hall over the
The LT/HYW BCP on Hong Kong side would require
resumption and resite of
(c) The connecting road with the LT/HYW BCP on Hong Kong side would adopt the alignment leading to Tolo/Fanling Highway in the eastern direction; and
The design and construction of the LT/HYW BCP
should be packaged with the improvement works of Liantang section of the
Mott MacDonald Hong Kong Ltd. (MMHK) was commissioned by the Civil Engineering and Development Department (CEDD) on 24 April 2009 under Agreement No. CE 45/2008 (CE) to provide professional services to address issues related to the planning, design and construction of the Project and to work out details of the Project to an extent to enable CEDD to take forward the Project to the detailed design and construction stages.
The Project consists of two main components, construction of a BCP; and construction of a connecting road alignment.
proposed BCP is located at the boundary with Shenzhen near the existing
The connecting road alignment consists of six main sections:
Hang to Frontier Closed Area (FCA) Boundary
– this section comprises at-grade and viaducts and includes the
improvement works at
2. Ping Yeung to Wo Keng Shan – this section stretches from the Frontier Closed Area Boundary to the tunnel portal at Cheung Shan and comprises at-grade and viaducts including an interchange at Ping Yeung;
3. North Tunnel – this section comprises the tunnel segment at Cheung Shan and includes a ventilation building at the portals on either end of the tunnel;
