Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects

Environmental Aspects A summary EIA, including an environmental management plan (EMP) for the Project was discussed and endorsed by APDOT, and made public on 4 July 2009. Construction of the project expressway and local roads was being carried out in accordance with the environmental mitigating measures recommended in the EIA, and the environmental management plan (EMP) has been implemented by the IAs to prevent any adverse environmental impacts.
Involuntary Resettlement

the expressway project has permanently acquired 11,035 mu (735.6 ha) of land. A total of 71,617 m2 of buildings were demolished. A total of 10,114 households or 38,444 people were affected by land acquisition and 495 households or 1,865 people were relocated by house demolition.

For local roads components, (i) a total of 2529.3 mu lands were permanently acquired. A total of 164,474M2 of buildings were demolished. The compensation payments for S105 Feidong,S312 and X056 Ling Bi are completed and the remaining three (S105 Chao Lake, X056 Si Xian and X056 Yongqiao) are on track.

Indigenous Peoples No ethnic minority group is in the project area.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

Stakeholder participation and consultation methods employed during Project design include a sample household socioeconomic survey, sample EIA questionnaire survey, focus group discussion and consultation meeting, key informant interview, and stakeholder consultation workshops.

DMF workshops were organized and conducted to include a wide range of stakeholders. Two workshops were organized to raise awareness about ADB's safeguard issues and obtain feedback on resettlement plans, social development action plan, and EIAs. Development of the environmental management plan (EMP), environmental impact assessment (EIA) involved two rounds of public consultations from February to April 2009. The first round of consultations took place in February 2009, shortly after the start of preparation of EIAs. This round was conducted by the local EIA institutes through web information disclosure, questionnaire, and public meetings. The stakeholders who attended or investigated included representatives from various government departments, nearby residents or their representatives. The second round of public meetings were held in April 2009 with the participation of the PPTA consultants, stakeholders, various government departments, and nearby residents or their representatives. The purpose was to introduce the Project and the relevant components to a range of stakeholders, and to solicit their views on the Project and its potential environmental implications, so that the EIA could take these into account during impact assessment.

From January-April 2009, about 2,500 households were surveyed in the project areas by the resettlement planning team to gather information on their socioeconomic profile, their concerns, development priorities and suggestions towards the project design and implementation.

During Project Implementation

Public disclosure of all project documents on the ADB website include the project information document (PID), DMF, resettlement plans (RPs), summary environmental impact assessment (SEIA), EIAs, Report and Recommendation of the President, project administration memorandum, and social and environmental monitoring reports.

All the updated RPs have been finalized and disclosed to the local officials and affected villages and a resettlement information booklet including the scope of the resettlement impacts, compensation policy and entitlements, and grievance redress channel will be provided to affected households directly. The land acquisition and house demolition contracts have been signed with affected villages and APs prior to land acquisition or civil works.

The IAs under the supervision of PEO are responsible for public participation during project implementation. The IAs have established environmental and resettlement management units for supervising EMP and RP implementation, continuing public consultation, monitoring progress, and responding to grievances. In addition, the established feedback mechanisms will ensure timely feedback and measures to address any concerns raised by the project affected communities.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services The project will finance 24 person-months of international consulting services, including 7 person-months each for the following specialist: (i) road safety management, (ii) rural transport services, and 5 person-months for each for (iii) road asset management, and (iv) environmental specialist. Considering the need for continuing the previous work carried out and application of background studies and analysis, the international consultant engaged for preparing this project under the PPTA will be recruited using single source selection method to provide the road safety and rural transport services. The project will also provide $100,000 each to finance supervisory consulting services for (i) a rural transport services demonstration project supervision; (ii) local road traffic safety project supervision; and (iii) road sector financing and maintenance study. All other international consultants will be selected and engaged based on a Quality-Cost Based Selection (QCBS). Anhui Provincial Communications Department (APCD) will engage and entirely finances 6,000 person-months of national consultants. The national consultants, not financed by ADB, will be recruited in accordance with government procedures acceptable to ADB.
Procurement For ADB financing, ICB will be used for the expressway civil works and some local road works and NCB for some local road works and shopping for bus stops. For government financing, NCB will be used for expressway pavement, traffic control facility, electricity and machinery, ancillary facility and greening.
