Mongolian railroad set to have both narrow and broad gauge rails


The long-ranging dispute over using mixed railway gauges has now been settled, and Mongolia is set to lay narrow gauge rails to its southern border points and broad gauge rails to its northern ports.
A draft resolution on “Some Measures to Ensure the Implementation of the State Policy on Railway Transportation” was ratified with 84 percent support at the cabinet meeting held on October 25.
According to the draft resolution, new railway routes from Tavantolgoi to Gashuunsukhait and Khuut to Bichigt will be constructed with narrow gauge rails (1,435 mm), and new railway routes from Arts Suuri to Erdenet, Tavantolgoi-Sainshand-Baruun-Urt – Khuut-Choibalsan and Khuut to Nomrog will be fit with broad gauge rails (1,520 mm).
