Environmental Assessment, Alternatives and Large-Scale Infrastructure Projects – The Öresund Fixed Link Case
Responsible organisation
2006 (English)Conference paper, (Refereed) PublishedAlternative title
Miljökonsekvensbeskrivning, alternativ och storskaliga infrastrukturprojekt : fallet Öresundsförbindelsen (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Large-scale infrastructure projects – here exemplified by the Öresund fixed link (bridge) between Malmö, Sweden and Copenhagen, Denmark – exhibit several characteristics typical to plans: they have far-reaching impacts beyond the immediate geographical area of the project, they can be seen as ‘contextuating decisions’ for further planning and development, and they often evolve and change over time. This has implications for the impact assessment of these kinds of projects: should they be treated as projects (EIA) or plans (SEA)? Looking at the case study of the Öresund fixed link, its decision-making process and impact assessment, in conjunction with the environmental concerns and arguments raised, it is clear that the issue of alternatives in the impact assessment is largely dependent on whether the approach taken is that of EIA, i.e. the project approach/mode, or SEA, i.e. the planning approach/mode.

Abstract [sv]

Storskaliga infrastrukturprojekt, som Öresundsförbindelsen liknar planer snarare än projekt: deras inverkan sträcker sig geografiskt utanför närområdet, de skapar kontexter för framtida planering och utveckling, och de utvecklas och förändras ofta under projekteringstiden. Detta påverkar hur miljökonsekvensbeskrivningar (MKB) för dessa projekt bör göras: borde de ses som projekt eller som planer i MKB-sammanhang? Fallet Öresundsförbindelsen och dess beslutsprocess, MKB samt miljödebatt visar att frågan om vilka alternativ som behandlas och bedöms beror på vilken approach som tas - om det ses som projekt (dvs MKB) eller som planer (dvs strategisk miljöbedömning, SMB). Nyckelord: strategisk miljöbedömning (SMB), miljökonsekvensbeskrivning (MKB), Öresundsförbindelsen, planer, projekt, alternativ
