2                PROJECT INFORMATION

Background

2.1          The Kwu Tung North (KTN) and Fanling North (FLN) New Development Areas (NDAs) are one of the important sources of land and housing supply in the medium and long term. The development of the KTN and FLN NDAs will be implemented in phase for full completion by 2031. The Phase 1 of the NDAs development, comprising the Advance Works and First Stage Works, is targeted to be implemented from the second half of 2019 progressively. The Advance and First Stage Works would include site formation, engineering infrastructure works (including roads, drainage, sewerage, waterworks, landscaping works, pumping stations, and fresh water and flushing water service reservoirs), soil remediation, reprovisioning of North District Temporary Wholesale Market, development of a nature park at Long Valley and implementation of environmental mitigation measures.

 

2.2          The scope of works under the Advance and First Stage Works comprises the following:

 

a)                  The Advance Works (PWP item No. 7747CL-2) consist of:

i)          site formation of land (including soil remediation) in KTN and FLN NDAs for housing, community facilities and engineering infrastructure;

ii)        construction of roads including the eastern section of Fanling Bypass (FLBP(E)) connecting the FLN NDA to Fanling Highway and other roads with footpaths and cycle tracks, and associated junction/ road improvements;

iii)      engineering infrastructure works including drainage. Sewerage (including two sewage pumping stations), waterworks (including a fresh water service reservoir and a flushing water service reservoir in the KTN NDA), landscape works and slopeworks;

iv)      part expansion and upgrading of Shek Wu Hui Sewage Treatment Works (SWHSTW);

v)        reprovisioning works; and

vi)      implementation of environmental mitigation measures and environmental monitoring and audit (EM&A) programme for the works mentioned in (i) to (v) above.

b)                  The First Stage Works (PWP item No. 7759CL) consist of:

i)          development of a nature park at Long Valley including provision of a visitor centre and a footbridge spanning across Sheung Yue River for connection between these two facilities;

ii)        reprovisioning of two egretry sites in the FLN NDA and enhancement works to an existing egretry site in the KTN NDA;

iii)      site formation of land for a village resite area and a district police station in the KTN NDA;

iv)      engineering infrastructure works including roads, drainage, sewerage, waterbirds, and landscape works; and 

v)        implementation of environmental mitigation measures and environmental monitoring and audit (EM&A) programme for the works mentioned in (i) to (iv) above.

 

2.3          The Project which covers KTN and FLN NDAs is a designated project (DP) under Schedule 3 of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Ordinance (Cap. 499). In October 2013, the EIA Report (AEIAR-175/2013) for the Project was approved by the Director of Environmental Protection pursuant to the EIA Ordinance. The relevant EPs under the Project and the respective Work Contracts are summarised in Tables 2.1a and 2.1.b.
