NOTICE OF DETERMINATION M77 JUNCTION 2 TO CORKERHILL FOOTBRIDGE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT DETERMINATION UNDER SECTION S5A OF THE ROADS (SCOTLAND) ACT 1984

The Scottish Ministers give notice that they have determined that the project for re-surfacing the M77 at Junction 2 to Corkerhill Footbridge is a relevant project within the meaning of section 55A of the Roads (Scotland) Act 1984 ("the 1984 Act") and falls within Annex II of Directive 2011/92/EU on the assessment of certain public and private projects on the environment, but that having regard to -

(a) the selection criteria contained in Annex III of that Directive, namely



(i) the use of natural resources, in particular land, soil, water and biodiversity;



(ii) the production of waste; (Hi) pollution and nuisances;



(iv) the risks to human health (for example due to water contamination or air pollution),

(b) the results of the Environmental Screening Assessment under section 55A(2) of the 1984 Act,



(c) the information set out in the Record of Determination dated 12 May 2021, available at

https://www.transport

. gov.scot/transport-network/roads/road-orders-and-records-of-determination/#63527, the project does not require an Environmental Impact Assessment.



The main reasons for the conclusion that no Environmental Impact Assessment is required are:

(a) Construction activities are restricted to the existing carriageway;



(b) The works will be limited to the like-for-like replacement of the carriageway pavement;



(c) The scheme is not situated in whole or in part in a "sensitive area" as listed under regulation 2(1) of the Environmental Impact Assessment (Scotland) Regulations 1999 (as amended);



(d) No significant residual impacts are predicted. Disruption due to construction activities is not expected to be significant and will be mitigated as far as is reasonably practicable; and



(e) Traffic management and working times will be communicated to road users in advance of the works.



The features of the project which are envisaged to avoid or prevent significant adverse effects on the environment are:

(a) Materials will be derived from recycled, secondary or re-used origin as far as practicable within the design specifications;



(b) Pollution prevention measures and best practice will be adhered to at all times;



(c) The waste hierarchy will be applied to all waste arising; and



(d) The design option (replacing the defective surfacing) conveys sustainability benefits by significantly reducing



the quantity of maintenance interventions _
