In all of our projects, PROLINTAS has imposed strict safety and environmental management systems at every stage of construction to ensure public safety and ecological friendliness. We comply with every facet of the Environmental Assessment (EIA) to ensure all the requirements in the environmental measures are stringently observed.
Considering that the construction of SUKE will be within an existing network of roads, communities, and other human activities, it is of utmost importance that the impact to the environment be minimised and effective plans be put in place to ensure that any impact to the environment is mitigated. Being in business since 1995, PROLINTAS is well-experienced in ensuring that all their quality, safety and environment procedures are followed at every instance.
The SUKE Project Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) was carried out by Jurukur Perunding Sdn Bhd and approved by the Department of Environment (DOE). An Environmental Management Plan (EMP) will be put in place before constructions begin. All personnel, contractors and consultants are expected to comply with this plan. In addition, all environmental management plans (for example the Erosion & Sedimentation Control Plan) will comply with local acts and regulations. These plans will translate into very clear and concise procedures that need to be followed during activities on site. For example, when lorries enter and exit the site, the tyres of the vehicles will have to be hosed down, so as to decrease the aeration of dust and dirt from the site.
Another example of environmental safety and health measure that would be put in place is constant monitoring of noise and dust levels by the DOE. Any construction site not meeting the DOE standards, will be given a warning and required to adjust accordingly. Moreover, constructions will only be carried out at certain times of the day.
As with all PROLINTAS projects, we employ state-of-the-art highway construction technology such as pre-cast segmental technology and arranged using overhead gantries. Techniques that minimise vibrations and noise are adopted such as the bored piling, a screw-in technique that eliminates vibrations as compared to conventional piling methods.
With the recent ISO 14001 certification for Environmental Management, PROLINTAS has stepped up its efforts to strengthened its commitments in managing hazardous materials, noise and other environmental concerns.
Apart from these, the public can rely on information regarding traffic management plans or periodical updates through this website. The public can also look out for print ads, twitter messages and our customer services mobile kiosk that is scheduled to ply constructions areas from time to time once construction begins, for the latest information.
PROLINTAS welcomes all feedback from the public through its soon-to-be-available hotline and email as well as the customer service mobile kiosk.
