TRANSPORT AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY INFRASTRUCTURE IN THE AMAZON: THE RECONSTRUCTION OF HIGHWAY BR-319 AND ITS CONSEQUENCES IN REGIONAL CONTEXT

Rafael Vieira da Silva, Assed Naked Haddad, Corbiniano Silva

Resumo


The need for restoration of Brazilian highways make up a strong proposal for economic development in the country has supported currently considering the gradual reduction of economic waste in implementation of reconstruction activities, restoration and restructuring of roads and / or highways, and the reducing environmental impacts in the vicinity of these projects, especially the areas of environmental/ecological relevance. In this perspective, the restructuring of the BR-319 highway from Manaus - Amazonas state - to Porto Velho, in Rondonia, from technical and environmental aspects, a set of actions were structured and entered as key variables in the reconstruction process road network of the country, established by law nº.10.233 (05.06.2001), which states in its general principles that transport infrastructure management must reconcile transport with environmental preservation. In this context, the use of mechanisms and practices associated with the theme environment and have the ability to gradually reduce potential environmental impacts from the highway restoration activities are part of a sustainable development project of the Brazilian state, assuming the use of methods and validated techniques in environmental engineering and considering the process of mitigating environmental impacts. So, to discuss the restructuring of the BR-319 highway, which calls for a paradigm doubtful about the road network to be installed in the Amazon region, especially given the prospect of environmental impacts, we emphasize the challenge for the implementation of technical environmentally sustainable, in order to reduce environmental Criticality inherent in the restructuring of this development process.
