Abstract or Introduction
In this section, it will present the potential noise assessment of the impact that may be accompanied by the operation and construction phases of the proposed West Kowloon Reclamation development (WKCD). The noise that is produced in various activities during construction is the primary concern at construction phases. The noise comes from fixed plants ventilation shafts, adjacent roads from traffic which are the major noise impact in the phases of operation. There has been an assessment done on the worse impact of the noise produced from the site of construction phases by use of noise sensitive receiver that is fitted three hundred meters from the site. Mitigation measures have been recommended accordingly for the reduction of the impact of noise to levels that are acceptable. The noise level are checked and analyzed by specialist from Environmental Impact Assessment and gives a report for the levels of the noise impact. If the report from Environmental Impact Assessment is similar to the construction contractor’s noise impact report, then a working permit is issued for the continuation of the proposed project development. If the reports from the Environmental Impact Assessment noise impact specialist differs from that of proposed construction developer’s constructor, then the project is denied the permit of working and charged with the enacted laws under Environmental Impact Assessment and Technical Memorandum.
