Environmentalist group wants greater assessment of new airport

by TPN/Lusa, in News · 11-05-2018 14:53:00 · 0 Comments

Portuguese environmentalist group Zero has said that the choice of the location for Lisbon’s new airport should be subject to a Strategic Environmental Assessment, which is more wide-ranging that the Environmental Impact Study and said it may appeal for European Commission (EC) intervention.

Environmentalist group wants greater assessment of new airport

 

Reacting to an article published yesterday saying that ANA – the airport manager was going to deliver the Environmental Impact Study to the government this week about the new airport of the south bank of the Tagus, Zero said this was the wrong procedure.

 

Portuguese daily paper ‘Jornal de Negócios’, said the EIS for the new airport would be delivered allowing the project to go ahead, but pointed out some impacts on local plants and animal, which ANA considered to be relatively insignificant.

 

Zero also said it was important to clarify whether Lisbon’s current airport “will or not ever be replaced by an airport to be built at the Alcochete Firing range”, what the role of Montijo would be to each of these infrastructures and what measures would be taken to significantly reduce excessive noise from the current airport and the new one in Montijo.
