I BACKGROUND OF THE PROJECT The Karnataka State Highway Improvement Project has taken up improvements of 831 kms of State Highways in the state with financial assistance from the World Bank under the Second Karnataka State Highways Improvement Project at cost of US$ 350 Millions. Under the project the existing single/intermittent roads will be strengthened and widened to 2 way carriage way with paved/unpaved shoulders on either side. The civil works will be taken up under (i) Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) contract in five packages for 268.9 kms of roads for which contractors are already in place and (ii) Engineering procurement Annuity contract in four packages for 562 kms of roads where in the procurement is in progress and contractors are expected to be in place by April 2012. Environmental Monitoring is part of the project consultancy assignment. Duration of Monitoring: Environment Monitoring will cover: both EPC Construction stage which varies from a minimum of 1.5 years to maximum of 3 years and EPA Construction stage which varies from a minimum of 2 years to maximum of 3 years. It is proposed to carry Environmental monitoring for one year after the construction is complete. EPC road construction works are expected to start in the field from June 2011 and EPA road construction works are expected to commence from April 2012. .The period for environmental monitoring has been broadly divided in 3 quarters spread over 12 months, each year. Ambient Air Quality Monitoring
An average total of about 54 samples per year for EPC roads and 105 samples per year for EPA roads in the frequency of 8-hour sampling for four consecutive years have been estimated for the ambient air quality monitoring. The monitoring locations will include established monitoring stations under the project , crushers, hot mix plants, construction sites etc. The broad locations will be determined by the client during project execution where as sampling points will be determined by the environmental monitoring consultants as per CPCB/KSPCB guidelines. Noise Level Monitoring
The client will identify broadly the sampling locations the project corridor during monitoring period. Broad locations will be determined by the client during construction where as sampling points will be determined by the Environmental monitoring consultants as per CPCB/KSPCB guidelines. where as sampling points will be determined by the environmental monitoring consultants as per CPCB/KSPCB guidelines. Water Quality Analysis The samples will be about 30 locations per year for EPC roads and 69 locations per year for EPA roads for four consecutive years. where as sampling points will be determined by the Environmental monitoring consultants as per CPCB/KSPCB guidelines.An yearly average total of about 54 samples for EPC roads and 105 samples per year for EPA roads in the frequency of 8-hour sampling for four consecutive years have been estimated for the noise level monitoring for four consecutive years. The client will broadly identify the sampling points along the project corridors where the bridge/cross drainage structure construction is under progress. Na (mg/gm). noise level and water quality analysis. 2 . II OBJECTIVES The main objectives of the Consultant thus appointed for carrying out the Environmental Monitoring would be: a) To carry out the Environmental Monitoring as per the Central Pollution Control Board and Karnataka State Pollution Control Board Guidelines and to adhere strictly to the methodology prescribed under the BIS guidelines on measurement of ambient air pollutants. Soil Quality Analysis The soil testing will be carried out at12 locations per year in EPC project roads and 21 locations per year in EPA project roads per year for four consecutive years to assess the soil characteristics such as PH. P (mg/gm) and K (mg/gm) in the project area which helps to assess the nutritional requirement for the plantations and survivability of the avenue plantations in the project area.
The client will not bear any cost on this account in the field. the selected Consultant will carry out: ` 1.
