4                          NOISE IMPACT

4.1                     Introduction

4.1.1                 This section presents an assessment of the potential noise impacts associated with the construction and operation of the Project.  The noise impact assessment is conducted in accordance with the requirements of Annex 5 and Annex 13 of the Technical Memorandum on Environmental Impact Assessment Process (EIAO-TM) as well as the technical requirements given in Appendix C of the EIA Study Brief (ESB-318/2019).

4.2                     Legislation, Standards and Guidelines

4.2.1                 The relevant legislation and associated guidance applicable to the present study for the assessment of noise impacts include:

·       Noise Control Ordinance (NCO) (Cap.400);

·       Environmental Impact Assessment Ordinance (EIAO) (Cap. 499);

·       Technical Memorandum (TM) on Noise from Construction Work other than Percussive Piling (GW-TW);

·       TM on Noise from Construction Work in Designated Areas (DA-TM);

·       TM for the Assessment of Noise from Places other than Domestic Premises, Public Places or Construction Sites (IND-TM); and

·       Technical Memorandum on Environmental Impact Assessment Process (EIAO-TM).

Construction Noise

Construction Airborne Noise during Non-restricted Hours

4.2.2                 To ensure a better environment, the EIAO-TM promulgated under the EIAO has imposed more stringent criteria.  For construction, there is no statutory limit on daytime construction noise under the NCO and related TMs.  Nevertheless, Table 1B in Annex 5 of the EIAO-TM stipulates noise standards of 65 – 75 dB(A) for daytime construction activities, as shown in Table 4.2.1.

Note:

[1] The above standards apply to uses that rely on opened windows for ventilation.

 

4.2.3                 All the proposed construction works are expected to be carried out during non-restricted hours.  In case of any construction activities during restricted hours and/or percussive piling is found required, it is the Contractor’s responsibility to ensure compliance with the NCO and the relevant TMs. The Contractor will be required to submit a construction noise permit (CNP) application to the Noise Control Authority and abide by any conditions stated in the CNP, should one be issued. It should be noted that description made in this report does not guarantee that a CNP will be granted for the project construction.  The Noise Control Authority would take into account the contemporary conditions of adjoining land uses and other considerations when processing the CNP application based on the NCO and relevant TM issued under the NCO. The findings in the report shall not bind the Noise Control Authority in making the decision.

Operational Noise

Road Traffic Noise

4.2.4                 Table 1A in Annex 5 of the EIAO-TM provides the assessment criteria for road traffic noise impact at NSRs which rely on the opened windows for ventilation.  The relevant criteria are shown in Table 4.2.2 below.

·       diagnostic rooms

·       wards

55

Note:

[1] The above criteria apply to noise sensitive uses which rely on open window for ventilation and should be viewed as the maximum permissible noise levels assessed at 1m from the external facades.

 

Fixed Noise Source

4.2.5                 Table 1A in Annex 5 of the EIAO-TM and the Technical Memorandum for the Assessment of Noise from Places other than Domestic Premises, Public Places or Construction Sites (IND-TM) stipulate the appropriate Acceptable Noise Level (ANL) for fixed noise sources.  The ANLs as shown in Table 4.2.3 are dependent on the Area Sensitivity Ratings (ASRs) of the NSRs, as defined in accordance with the IND-TM.  The EIAO-TM requires that the planned fixed noise sources shall comply with 5 dB(A) below the ANLs shown in Table 4.2.3 or the prevailing background noise levels, whichever lower.

Aircraft Noise

4.2.6                 The noise criterion for aircraft noise is given in Table 1A in Annex 5 of the EIAO-TM. For aircraft noise, NSRs should be planned beyond the NEF25 contour, except for offices which should be beyond the NEF30 contour. Similar to the road traffic noise, all these criteria only apply to NSRs relying on opened windows for ventilation.

4.2.7                 Since there is no relevant noise criteria in the EIAO-TM for aircraft noise impact associated with Shek Kong Airfield, reference has been made to the criteria for Chek Lap Kok Airport. Noise sensitive uses including all domestic premises should beyond the NEF25 contour for assessing the impact from Shek Kong Airfield.

Helicopter Noise

4.2.8                 Table 1A in Annex 5 of the EIAO-TM stipulate the noise standards for helicopter noise between 0700 – 1900, NSRs should be planned beyond having the noise impacts less than Lmax 85dB(A), except for offices which should be exposed to noise impacts not exceeding Lmax 90dB(A). Similar to the road traffic noise, all these criteria only apply to NSRs relying on opened windows for ventilation.

4.2.9                 Since there is no relevant noise criteria in the EIAO-TM for both evening and night-time periods, reference has been made to the approved EIA report for A Rooftop Helipad at the Proposed New Block of Queen Mary Hospital (AEIAR-208/2017).  According to their findings, there is no statutory noise criterion for emergency services (including air ambulance, search & rescue (SAR), supporting law enforcement agencies, firefighting) during evening and night-time periods.  The emergency services are generally exempted from the flight restrictions. 

4.3                     Baseline Conditions

Existing Environment

4.3.1                 The Project area covering 32 hectares of land of the Fanling Golf Course is located to the east of Fan Kam Road. The Project Site comprises the Potential Development Area (PDA) and works area proposed for the associated infrastructure (i.e. road improvement works and utility works). The proposed residential development is located in Sub-Area 1 (north of the site). It is bounded by Fan Kam Road to the east, Po Kin Road and North District Hospital to the north, and low-rise/ village type development. Background noise in the vicinity is typical of rural environment. The existing noise climate is dominated by major fixed plant noise sources such as mechanical ventilation system at the North District Hospital and road traffic noise from Fan Kam Road and Po Kin Road. Based on desktop review, the PDA is near the departure flight path to be in use under the Three-Runway System (3RS) operation but located over 15km outside the Noise Exposure Forecast 25 (NEF 25) Contour. Details are provided in Appendix 4.3.1.

 

Prevailing Background Noise Levels

4.3.2                 Since the prevailing background noise level may vary with weekday/weekend, background noise measurement has been conducted during weekday and weekend. Two 24-hr prevailing noise levels have been measured near the existing NSRs in the vicinity of the PDA on 18 Dec 2020 and 19 Dec 2020. The measurement results are considered representative. Figure 4.7.2 shows the locations of the prevailing noise measurement.  A summary of the prevailing noise measurement results in given in Table 4.3.1.

4.3.3                 The background noise of BG1 is mainly contributed by the activities from the village while the background noise of BG2 is mainly contributed by activities from the high-rise residential development and schools. Given Sub-Area 1 of the PDA would comprise of high-rise residential development and schools, whereas the existing environment is a golf course site, the prevailing background noise level obtained at BG2 is considered representative of the future prevailing background noise level at Sub-Area 1.

[2] +3 dB(A) façade correction is included

 

4.4                     Noise Sensitive Receivers

4.4.1                 With reference to Annex 13 of the EIAO-TM, Noise Sensitive Receivers (NSRs) shall include residential uses (all domestic premises including temporary housing), institutional uses (educational institutions including kindergarten and nurseries), hospitals, medical clinics, homes for the aged, convalescent homes, places of public worship, libraries, court of law, performing arts centres, auditoria and amphitheatres, country park and others.

4.4.2                 The assessment area for noise impact is generally defined by a distance of 300m from the boundary of the Project Area and the works of the Project. Representative NSRs within a distance of 300m from the Project Site have been identified with the first layer of NSRs selected as representative NSRs for assessment.  These NSRs include the existing, committed and planned developments during both construction and operation phases.

4.4.3                 Representative existing, planned and committed NSRs within the assessment area have been identified based on the topographic maps supplemented by site surveys, Outline Zoning Plans (OZPs), other published plans in the vicinity of the Project site. The tentative layout of the proposed Public Housing Development confirmed by the Housing Authority (HKHA) have been used to identify the planned sensitive receivers within the PDA. 

4.4.4                 All existing, committed and planned noise uses are identified based on the below latest Outline Zoning Plans. 

·       Fanling / Sheung Shui OZP No. S/FSS/25

·       Ping Kong OZP No. S/NE-PK/11

·       Kwu Tung South OZP No. S/NE-KTS/18

4.4.5                 The overall relevant NSRs are summarised in Table 4.4.1 and their locations are shown in Figures 4.4.1a to 4.4.1d.  Photos of these representative NSRs are provided in Appendix 4.4.1.  Representative NSRs and assessment points for construction and operational noise impact assessment are presented in relevant sections.

Notes:
[1] The noise assessments will only include NSRs which rely on opened windows for ventilation.

[2] R – Residential Premises; E – Educational Institution; W – Place of Public Worship; HE – Homes for the elderly; G/IC – Social Welfare Facility Building.

[3] North District Hospital is provided with central air-conditioning system and well-gasketted windows and do not rely on opened window for ventilation. It is therefore not considered in the noise assessment.

[4] As advised by Hospital Authority (see Appendix 4.4.2), North District Hospital Extension is an acute hospital which includes accident & emergency service, radiology, pharmacy, ambulatory care services, wards, mortuary, etc. There will not be any staff quarters. The building will be equipped with fixed glazing and centralized air-conditioning system. It does not rely on openable windows for ventilation.  It is therefore not considered in the noise assessment.

N/A denotes relevant information is not available.

 

4.4.6                 The kindergarten proposed at Podium Garden Block would be provided with mechanical ventilation such that it would not rely on openable window for ventilation.

4.4.7                 The passive recreational and ancillary facilities would be provided in Sub-Areas 2 to 3 and no works would be carried in Sub-Area 4. However, the proposed building at Sub-Area 2 (south of block 10) will be designed with mechanical ventilation such that it will not rely on opened window for ventilation.  

4.4.8                 In order to evaluate the construction and operation noise impacts from the Project, all existing/committed/planned NSRs located within the assessment area are identified for assessment. Noise Assessment Points (NAPs) to represent the identified NSRs are selected for carrying out construction and operation impact assessment and presented in following sections.

Notes:
[1] R – Residential Premises; E – Educational Institution;

[2] 70 dB(A) during 0700 to 1900 hours on any school day not being Sunday or general holiday; 65 dB(A) during examinations.

[3] W – Place of Public Worship; HE – Homes for the elderly; Noise standards for daytime construction activities for these uses are not specified in EIAO-TM. Considered the nature of these uses is similar to residential premises, Leq (30mins) 75dB(A) is adopted as noise criteria in the assessment.

 

Noise Sources during Construction Phase

4.5.1.2            Potential construction noise impacts would arise from the use of powered mechanical equipment (PME) during the construction works of the Project.  The key activities during construction phase are typical to other land-based housing development projects, which include site clearance, site formation, piling works, pipeworks, utility works and road improvement works.  Based on the current construction design, percussive piling and blasting are not required.

4.5.1.3            Based on the current design, there is no planned vehicular/ railway tunnel for the development. No rock breaking/drilling works is envisaged during the construction phase of the Project. Trenchless method would be adopted at some critical locations of pipe laying works. The pipe jacking system, mini Tunnel Bored Machine and grout pump will be located at the bottom of pit, the airborne noise impact associated with these PMEs would be insignificant. Mini Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) adopted for proposed pipe jacking works is of approximately 1.5m diameters. Considered the small-scale of pipe jacking works and the size of mini TBM, the groundborne noise impact associated with the mini TBM is anticipated to be insignificant. Therefore, groundborne noise impact is not anticipated during the construction phase.

4.5.1.4            The construction of the Project would be carried out concurrently with the following project that may induce cumulative environment impacts:

·       Reclaimed Water Supply to Sheung Shui and Fanling – Investigation, Design and Construction (Proposed Pumping and Distribution Mains Works near Po Shek Wu Road)

·       North District Hospital Extension

·       Improvement of Po Shek Wu Interchange Improvement under NENT NDA development (including Po Shek Wu Road Flyover)

·       Improvement to So Kwun Po Interchange

·       Engineering Feasibility Studies for Site Formation and Infrastructural Works for Housing Developments in North District – Tai Tau Leng Site and Ching Hiu Road Site.

Reclaimed Water Supply to Sheung Shui and Fanling – Investigation, Design and Construction

4.5.1.5            According to the approved Preliminary Environmental Review (PER) Report of the Reclaimed Water Supply to Sheung Shui and Fanling – Investigation, Design and Construction, the works for pumping main were scheduled to commence in 2020 for completion in 2022, whereas the flushing water distribution mains was scheduled to commence in 2020 for completion in phases by 2025. Based on its works area, this concurrent project will have cumulative impact with works of flushing water mains laying and sewer laying.

North District Hospital Extension

4.5.1.6            North District Hospital Extension is an acute hospital which includes accident & emergency service, radiology, pharmacy, ambulatory care services, wards, mortuary, etc. There will not be any staff quarters. The building will be equipped with fixed glazing and centralized air-conditioning system. It does not rely on operable windows for ventilation. As advised by Hospital Authority (see Appendix 4.4.2), this project is still at the early design stage, construction details are yet to be finalized or available. 

Improvement of Po Shek Wu Interchange Improvement under NENT NDA development

4.5.1.7            Po Shek Wu Interchange is currently exceeding its junction capacity.  In order to cater for the traffic flow from the FLN NDA, improvement work, including realignment of Po Shek Wu Road and the construction of an elevated southbound right-turning slip road to bypass the interchange, is proposed.  According to approved EIA, the targeted commencement date for construction works would be in 2025 and targeted completion of construction works by 2029. As checked with CEDD, the relevant information (e.g. plant inventory) in the approved NENT NDA EIA are the latest available information for cumulative assessment at this time of study.

 Improvement to So Kwun Po Interchange

4.5.1.8            Improvement of So Kwun Po Interchange is to construct a new carriageway linking San Wan Road and Pak Wo Road directly. This project is a statutory EIA.  According to the Project Profile of this project, the Investigation, Design and Construction (IDC) study including EIA will commence in mid-2021. The targeted commencement date for construction works would be in 2025 and targeted completion of construction works by 2030. As advised by CEDD, there is currently no proposed plant inventory available during the preparation of FGC EIA study.

Engineering Feasibility Studies for Site Formation and Infrastructural Works for Housing Developments in North District – Tai Tau Leng Site and Ching Hiu Road Site

4.5.1.9            The Government continues to optimise the use of potential areas to meet the community’s pressing demand for housing. During the preparation of the EIA Study, detailed information of these feasibility studies is not available.

4.5.1.10         Construction worksites are shown in Figure 4.5.1 and tentative construction programme is presented in Appendix 4.5.1. The works area of the concurrent project can be referred to Appendix 4.5.1.

 

4.5.2                 Assessment Methodology

4.5.2.1            The assessment of construction noise impacts arising from works other than percussive piling were based on standard acoustic principles and guidelines given in the GW-TM issued under the NCO where appropriate.  The sound power levels (SWLs) of the PME were referenced to those listed in Table 3 of GW-TM.  Where SWL was not available in the GW-TM, reference has been made to the following sources of information in descending order of preference.

·       Typically available Quality Powered Mechanical Equipment (“QPME”) with valid QPME Labels maintained and listed in EPD’s website

·       Other commonly used PME in EPD’s website

·       Other EIA reports or measurements taken in other relevant studies.

4.5.2.2            The approach adopted is considered by Project Engineer to be practicable and summarised as follows:

(i)             Devise a typical and realistic construction programme as shown in Appendix 4.5.1;

(ii)           Prepare an assumed project-specific equipment inventory, including equipment type, number and utilization rates during any 30 minutes working period within the non-restricted hours without mitigation,  is confirmed by Project Engineer to be appropriate and practicable for completing the works within the proposed construction programme, as appended in Appendix 4.5.2;

(iii)         Obtain from GW-TM or other sources mentioned above, the SWL of each PME assumed in the equipment inventory;

(iv)          Select representative NSRs for the construction noise impact assessment as shown in Figure 4.5.1a to Figure 4.5.1d;

(v)           Calculate the unmitigated Predicted Noise Level (PNL) based on assumed work Sub-Areas, notional source positions, together with correction for distance attenuation, in-situ/ inherent screening due to architectural features or existing buildings;

(vi)          Calculate the unmitigated overall Corrected Noise Level (CNL) at any NSRs for each month over the entire construction period;

(vii)        In the event of noise exceedance, devise necessary mitigation measures including use of typical quiet equipment (e.g. QPME registered by EPD) and/or use of adequate screening by noise barrier/ enclosure as earmarked in the mitigated plant inventory and calculate the mitigated noise impact; and

(viii)      Compare the mitigated overall CNL with the noise standards given in  Table 4.2.1 to determine the need for further mitigation.

4.5.2.3            Noise impact levels due to individual noise sources have been predicted at each NSR after the corrections for distance attenuation and screening effects as the PNL.

PNLi = SWLi + Cdist + Cbarrier

4.5.2.4            For any construction activities that will be carried out concurrently, the relevant individual PNLs are then summed logarithmically with correction for façade reflection for the overall impacts (“CNL”) at each individual NSR:

CNL = PNLi + Cfacade

where

·       PNLi = Predicted noise level arising from various individual source after corrections for distance attenuation and screening

·       SWLi = Sound power level of individual construction noise sources

·       C dist = Correction for distance attenuation

·       C barrier ­­= Correction [-5 to -10 dB(A)] for barrier effects due to in-situ screening by obstacles, architectural features or purpose-built noise barrier

·       C façade = Correction [+3 dB(A)] for façade reflection at NSR

·       CNL = Corrected overall noise level being logarithmic sum of individual PNLs occurring at the same time together with correction for façade at the NSR

4.5.2.5            To assess the cumulative impact from concurrent project, the maximum SWL of their construction activities was taken from the approved PER Report of Reclaimed Water Supply to Sheung Shui and Fanling – Investigation, Design and Construction and approved EIA report of North East New Territories New Development Areas.

 

4.5.3                 Prediction and Evaluation of Construction Noise Impacts (Unmitigated Scenario)

4.5.3.1            The predicted unmitigated construction noise levels at representative NSRs were predicted and summarised in Table 4.5.2 with detailed results presented in Appendix 4.5.3.  There would be exceedances predicted at the majority of NSRs.  Mitigation measures are therefore required.

[3]  Other uses refer to Homes for the elderly and Place of Public Worship. 1NAP is assumed to represent 2 habitat rooms per floor.

 

 

4.5.4                 Mitigation Measures

4.5.4.1            The predicted noise levels show that the unmitigated construction noise impacts would exceed the daytime noise criteria.  Mitigation measures are therefore required. The recommended mitigation measures are confirmed by Project Engineers to be feasible and practicable. The following mitigation measures have been considered:

·       Adoption of quieter construction method;

·       Use of quality PMEs (QPMEs) with lower SWL;

·       Use of movable noise barriers, noise insulating fabric and noise enclosures to screen noise from relatively static PMEs; and

·       Good site practices to limit noise emissions at source

Adoption of Quieter Construction Method

4.5.4.2            Instead of traditional construction method as presented under the unmitigated scenario, a quieter construction method is recommended for site clearance works. Non-Explosive Chemical Expansion Agent (Soundless Chemical Demolition Agent) is proposed to be adopted to replace the use of breakers. Unlike explosive chemicals or expansive compounds, Soundless Chemical Demolition Agents do not produce vibrations, and hence, they are completely quiet and safe to use. When the chemical agent is properly used, it does not cause significant noise, ground vibration, fly rock, gas, dust or any other environmental pollution. This soundless chemical demolition agent is used for concrete demolition or rock breaking and much quieter than traditional breakers. According to the information provided by EPD, the sound pressure level (SPL) of the operation of the Soundless Chemical Demolition Agent ranges from 60 to 65 dB(A) at 7m from equipment, i.e. the sound power level (SWL) of the operation is 85 to 90dB(A). 90dB(A) has been adopted in this assessment as the conservative approach.  This method is considered by Project Engineer to be feasible in actual situation and practicable in the context of construction programme.

 

4.5.4.3            Silent Piling by Press-in Method is proposed to be adopted to replace traditional massive augering and piling machines for sheet piling work at hard ground condition which would create significant noise and vibration impacts to neighbours. For the Silent Press-in Method, a sheet pile is clipped andpressed underground. Even for harder ground, noise and vibration can also be minimized by pressing-in sheet piles with simultaneous augering, by the Gyropress Method. Construction work can also be completed in shorter duration by using this method so that the noise impact to nearby NSRs can also be further alleviated. According to approved EIA on Shatin to Central Link - Mong Kok East to Hung Hom Section (Register No. AEIAR-165/2012), Giken Piler and Power-pack for silent piling has been proposed and the SWL of 94dB(A) has been adopted in this assessment. This method is considered by Project Engineer to be feasible in actual situation and practicable in the context of construction programme.

 

Use of Quality PMEs

4.5.4.4            Use of QPMEs with lower SWL is recommended to reduce the noise impacts for the Development.  The list of proposed QPMEs and their respective SWLs are presented in Table 4.5.4 below.

Use of Noise Insulating Fabric

4.5.4.5            Noise insulating fabric can be adopted for certain PME such as piling machine. According to the approved Tsim Sha Tsui Station Northern Subway EIA Report (Register No.: AEIAR127/2008), provided that the noise insulating fabrics are lapped such that there are no openings or gaps on the joints, a noise reduction of 10 dB(A) can be achieved.

 

Use of Movable Barriers and Noise Enclosures

4.5.4.6            Use of movable noise barriers and noise enclosures at the PMEs are recommended.  The barriers will be placed as close to the PME as possible and at a location intercepting the line of sight between the NSRs and PME. They should have a minimum surface density of 10 kg/m2 and be moved concurrently with the PME along the worksites.  A cantilevered top cover would be used for noise screening for upper floors of NSRs to achieve screening benefits.  According to the Guidance Note on Preparation of Construction Noise Impact Assessment GN No.9/2010, noise reduction of 5dB(A) and 10dB(A) can be achieved by direct application of the noise barriers to movable and stationary plant, respectively.  Movable noise enclosure made up of plywood is proposed to surround certain static PME. The internal wall of the enclosure should be laid with sound absorbent such as mineral wool. Without direct view of the noisy part of the enclosed PME from NSR, this design can achieve 10dB(A) reduction. The schematic diagrams for typical construction noise barrier and noise enclosure are provided in Appendix 4.5.4

 

4.5.4.7            The future contractor will be required through contract specifications to provide and implement sufficient direct mitigation measures with reference to the recommendations in this EIA or the future detailed design to achieve acceptable noise levels on the nearby NSRs.  The future contractor will also be required to prepare a construction noise management plan with reference to Section 8 and Annex 21 of the EIAO-TM as well as this EIA Report and EM&A Manual.  The construction management plan shall identify the inventory of noise sources and assess the effectiveness and practically of all mitigation measures considered during the design and tendering stage to minimize the construction noise impact. The construction management plan should confirm and summarise the mitigation measures to be implemented for the Project, and shall be submitted six months prior to the commencement of construction.

 

Good Site Practices

4.5.4.8            It is also recommended to implement good site practices as far as practicable so as to further reduce the noise impact at NSRs.  Since the effect of the good site practices could not be quantified, the mitigated noise levels calculated in the subsequent sections have not taken into account this effect.  The following good site practices should be followed during the construction of the Development:

·       Only well-maintained plant should be operated on-site and plants should be serviced regularly during the construction period;

·       Mobile plant, if any, should be sited as far from NSRs as possible;

·       Plant known to emit noise strongly in one direction should, wherever possible, be properly orientated so that the noise is directed away from the nearby NSRs;

·       Use of site hoarding as a noise barrier to screen noise at low level NSRs;

·       Machines and plant that may be in intermittent use should be shut down between works periods or should be throttled down to a minimum; and

·       Any material stockpiles and other structures should be effectively utilized, wherever practicable, to screen the noise from on-site construction activities.

 

 

 

4.5.5                 Prediction and Evaluation of Construction Noise Impacts (Mitigated Scenario)

4.5.5.1            The equipment inventory under the mitigated scenario, that is confirmed by Project Engineer to be appropriate and practicable for completing the works within the proposed construction programme, is appended in Appendix 4.5.2. The mitigated construction noise levels at representative NSRs are summarised in Table 4.5.5 below. Detailed results are presented in Appendix 4.5.5.
