BOHSR has completed the first and second half of the 2015 Environmental Impact Assessment on HSR Miaoli, Changhua and Yunlin stations and the core E&M system installation of Nangkang rail respectively on May 15 and Oct. 23, 2015. Assessment results showed that each construction tender has conformed to environmental regulations. The construction projects have managed to fulfill both engineering progress and environmental requirements.
Over the years, BOHSR and THSRC have constantly put emphasis on environmental-friendly actions and have proactively applied for environmental evaluation certifications. Regarding the green building certifications of Miaoli, Changhua and Yunlin stations, the environmental commitment of these three stations is to acquire Silver Level or higher certificates in the green building evaluation. To see through this environmental commitment, BOHSR construction teams have put full effort in the projects and the nominated green building certifications of the three stations were actually superior to the originally promised qualification level. Yunlin Station was nominated for Silver Level, Changhua Station was nominated for Gold Level and Miaoli Station was even nominated for Diamond Level. Looking at the station constructions, the three stations have a high possibility of acquiring better results than the original promised commitment which should indeed have positive impact on the surrounding environments.
