Roads around Government Palace to close for public parade

Route of closed roads

By M.ZOLJARGAL

Ulaanbaatar administrations closed roads in the area of the Government Palace at midnight yesterday to run the public parade honoring the 375th anniversary of Ulaanbaatar.
The intersection on the west side of Chinggis Square will be closed until 12:00 a.m. on Thursday, while the intersection on the east side of the square will be closed from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday.
The road stretching from Amar Street to the intersection of the Mongolian State University of Education will be closed until 2 p.m. today.
The Ulaanbaatar City Traffic Police Department has advised residents to drive on alternative intersections and roads in the meantime. Drivers are also advised not to drive their cars today to prevent traffic congestions.

Trolleybuses running free of charge today

Public transportation buses will charge passengers 200 MNT, which is a 50 percent discount, while trolleybuses will operate free of charge on the occasion of the 375th anniversary of Ulaanbaatar.
The tariff will continue from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. today. Buses will not charge children.
Public transportation companies are offering the tariff as part of “Metropolis Super Sale” public event.
No day-off today

A false rumor stating that the Ulaanbaatar’s anniversary will be a public holiday has spread among the residents. The Ulaanbaatar City Governor’s Office has confirmed that the rumor is false.
The officials cleared the misunderstanding and reported, “The public is allowed to have day-offs only on national holidays, in accordance with the law.”
The anniversary is listed as a commemorative day, rather than a national holiday, so residents will have their regular work day today.
