Q: Will the project generate noise pollution during construction period?
A: The PAT places emphasis on noise pollution. The 24 hours A-weighted Equivalent Continuous Sound Level should net excess 70 dBA according to the standard prescribed in the Announcement of the National Environmental Commission No. 15 (B.E. 2540). The PAT thus designated the consortium to check noise at Wat Mai Noen Phayom Temple. Result found that the 24-hour average noise is 63.7 dBA. Noise was also measured at three noise measurement stations at Community Development College, Ban Bang Lamung School and at the project site at all times.

A: The PAT realizes the significance of ecological diversity including plankton, marine creatures, and coral. It assigned the consultants to conduct impacts and mitigation measures to limit the impacts at the minimum. Currently, the process is at the feasibility study process.
   
Q: Can the Third Phase of the project help stimulate economy in general?
A: The project yields direct and indirect economic benefits to each and every Thai. Initially, throughout the construction process, there will be a procurement of home-grown construction materials, construction cost and investment, which creating employment while spending produces an increase in national income and consumption greater than the initial amount spent or a so-called multiplier effect.   
   
Q: Will the project create health and environmental impacts? 
A: Before the project construction commences, there will be environmental and health impact assessments, in line with an organization of a seminar to gather opinions and anxieties of the local people and interested third party.

Seminar divided into three parts:

1) Scope and approach of health and environmental impact assessments,
2) Assessments and reports of health and environmental impact studies and
