R48 environmental management plan, Czech Republic

As part of our commission from the Czech Republic’s Road and Motorway Directorate to manage and supervise construction of a new section of the R48 Belotin–Cesky Tesin Expressway, we were tasked with developing an environmental management and monitoring plan for the Dobra – Tosanovice section.

An environmental management plan was required to provide an assessment of measures to minimise environmental impact and determine environmental protection requirements for every aspect of construction. Environmental features are a key part of the new expressway section, ranging from landscaping and traditional tree planting to acoustic barriers, wild animal crossings and drainage water treatment.

Environmental measures

We examined a broad range of measures, such as:

  • Waste management
  • Wastewater and sewage treatment
  • Surface and ground water protection and monitoring
  • Hazardous chemicals treatment
  • Management of arable, under-arable and redundant land
  • Earthworks material
  • Transportation of materials and spoil
  • Air protection
  • Noise and vibration
  • Traffic violations and machine servicing and reparation
  • Green vegetation protection
  • Biodiversity and ecological protection
  • Palaeontological and archeological finds
  • Ooperational support services

The scope of the plan was equally wide ranging. As well as environmental monitoring and auditing, key aspects included compiling a register of legislative and related directives, developing an emergency plan, ensuring rehabilitation of temporary closed areas and setting a framework for communication with interested bodies and the media. Our specialists also provided training on implementing the plans.
