在2023年,新加坡国家环境局(NEA)针对位于宏茂桥第6大道的南北交通廊道(NSC)建设工地,针对一名承包商进行了执法行动,因其与噪音相关的违规行为。根据安全原因,承包商被允许在夜间和/或周末进行安全关键工作,因此这些工作必须出于安全考量连续进行。然而,这些承包商仍须实施一切可行的降噪措施,以最小化噪音。对于这项建设项目,NEA要求承包商进行噪音影响评估,并实施噪音管理计划以减少噪音。为了减少对利益相关者的不便,陆路交通管理局(LTA)及其承包商部署了噪音屏障、噪音围栏,并为机械装配消音器以降低噪音水平。LTA还进行局部利益相关者参与,并与基层领导合作,向公众提供项目特定信息的通知和更新。

 

议长:叶汉荣先生。

 

叶汉荣(杨厝港单选区议员):感谢部长的回答。除了罚款之外,是否采取了其他措施,比如暂停项目或列入黑名单,来对造成噪音违规行为的重复违规者进行惩罚?我提出这个国会议题是因为许多宏茂桥居民受到了南北交通廊道建设所产生的噪音污染的影响。部委是否进行了研究,评估噪音污染对居民的潜在健康影响,特别是对老年人或儿童等易受影响的人群?部委是否还探索了能够帮助减少项目中部分噪音污染的替代建设方法或技术?

马炎庆先生:国家环境局对建筑工地和其他影响周围居民以及其他利益相关者舒适和福祉的区域的噪音有严格的规定。

 

除了罚款外,如果承包商多次超过噪音限制,国家环境局将发出通知限制该活动的工作时间,以防止承包商再次违规。

 

对于违反星期天禁止工作条规限制,这意味着有一些时段不得进行工作或不得进行嘈杂的工作,如果违反规定,国家环境局将要求建筑工地的业主或占用者安装电子视频监控设备。国家环境局将有权访问监控系统,监视这些工地的活动,并对进一步的违规行为采取必要的严格执法措施。

 

但事实上,这是一个艰难的平衡,因为我们需要允许承包商能够加快工作进ya ,否则项目将被延长,这将导致居民长时间的不便。因此,我要感谢该地区的居民,以及所有受到工程影响的地区,感谢他们的理解和耐心,因为我们正在努力完成工程。

 

第6大道周围的工程是一项道路隧道工程,预计将于2029年完成。但工程的进展将分为不同的阶段,并不是所有的工作都会像现在这样嘈杂。我们也感谢议员汉荣先生一直为他的居民发声,他已经与LTA、NEA和建设局(BCA)等当局举行了许多会议,探讨减少不便的方法。因此,我们感谢他,也感谢居民们的理解。

 

当工程完成时,居民可以期待第6大道的地面层,优先考虑步行、骑行、公共交通和社区空间等不同用途。我们期待与居民合作,探讨如何重新规划由南北交通廊道创造的新空间。

议长:问答时间结束。政府法案介绍。

以下是英文质询内容:

FINES AND ACTIONS AGAINST ERRANT CONTRACTORS FOR NOISE-RELATED INFRACTIONS
RELATED TO NORTH-SOUTH CORRIDOR CONSTRUCTION PROJECT 

 

Mr Yip Hon Weng asked the Minister for Sustainability and the Environment for the North-South Corridor construction project along
Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6 

 

(a) how many errant contractors were fined in 2023 for noise related infractions; 

(b) what are the penalties for
recalcitrant offenders;

and (c) what measures is the Ministry taking to minimise noise related issues from the project. 

 

The Senior Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Sustainability and the Environment (Mr Baey Yam Keng) (for the
Minister for Sustainability and the Environment)

 

In 2023, the National Environment Agency (NEA) took one enforcement action
against the contractor of the North-South Corridor (NSC) construction site, located along Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6, for noise related
infractions.
Contractors are permitted to carry out safety critical work at night and/or on weekends, as such works need to be conducted
continuously for safety reasons. However, these contractors must still implement all practicable noise mitigation measures to minimise
noise.
For this construction project, NEA required the contractor to conduct a noise impact assessment and implement a noise management
plan to mitigate noise.
To minimise inconveniences to stakeholders, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and its contractors deploy noise barriers, noise
enclosures and fit mufflers on machinery to reduce noise levels. LTA also conducts localised stakeholder engagement and works with
grassroots leaders, to inform and update the public on project-specific information. 

 

Mr Speaker: Mr Yip Hon Weng. 

 

Mr Yip Hon Weng (Yio Chu Kang): I thank the Senior Parliamentary Secretary for his response. Besides fines, are there other
measures, such as project suspension or blacklisting, taken against repeat offenders causing noise infractions? I ask this
Parliamentary Question, because many of my residents in Yio Chu Kang are affected by the noise pollution from the NSC construction.
Has the Ministry conducted any studies to assess the potential health impact of noise pollution on residents, particularly vulnerable
populations, like elderly or children? And has the Ministry also explored alternative construction methods or technologies that could
help minimise some of this noise pollution from the project?

 

Mr Baey Yam Keng: Sir, NEA has strict regulations on noise from construction sites and other areas that affect the comfort and wellbeing of residents and other stakeholders around the construction site.

 

So, besides fines, if there are contractors who are caught for repeated exceedances of noise limits, NEA will issue a notice to restrict
the working hours for the activity, to prevent the contractors from re-offending. 

 

And for violations of the no-work rule, that means there are periods where no work or no noisy work should be conducted and if there
are violations, NEA will require the owner or the occupier of the construction sites that have violated this no-work rule, to install an
electronic video surveillance at their construction site. 
And NEA will have access to the surveillance system to monitor the activities at
these s
ites and take necessary strict enforcement for further violation.

 

I would like to mention that these particular works at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 6 is a very special one. It is part of the NSC, which the
Member would be familiar with that it is a major land transport construction project, spanning 21.5 kilometres. It is special, not just
because of the scale, but because of its proximity to many residential areas, as well as the very challenging soil conditions that the
contractors must work within. Therefore, the authorities have been taking many measures on the contractors, NEA has been
monitoring very closely the disturbances and the inconveniences impacting the residents around the area. We will take all necessary
measures and impose on the contractors to put in necessary measures to mitigate the noise.

 

But really, this is a difficult balance because we need to allow the contractors to be able to have expedited progress in its works,
otherwise, the project will be prolonged and extended, and that will even cause residents an extended period of inconveniences. So, I
do thank the residents of the area, and all areas affected by the works, for their understanding and patience as we work towards its
completion. 

 

The works around Avenue 6 is a road tunnel and that is expected to be completed in 2029. But the level of work will be in different
phases and not all works will be as noisy as it is. And we also appreciate the Member, Mr Yip Hon Weng, for always speaking up for
his residents, and he has held many meetings with authorities, like LTA, the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) and NEA, to
look at ways to minimise the inconveniences. So, we thank him and thank his residents for their understanding. 

 

When the works are completed, residents can look forward that the street level of Avenue 6 can be repurposed, to give priority to
different purposes, like walking, cycling, public transport and community spaces. We look forward to working with residents to look at
how we can repurpose the new space that has been created from the NSC. 

 

Mr Speaker: Order. End of Question Time. Introduction of Government Bill. 

 

[Pursuant to Standing Order No 22(3), provided that Members had not asked for questions standing in their names to be postponed to a later Sitting
day or withdrawn, written answers to questions not reached by the end of Question Time are reproduced in the Appendix.]
