Traffic restriction changes under review today


The Ulaanbaatar Administration Board is reviewing possible changes to traffic restrictions today during its regular meeting.
Some media outlets and social media have been reporting that traffic restrictions in Ulaanbaatar were halted last Thursday, as the extension of the restricted driving program had reportedly come to its end.
Ulaanbaatar City Mayor’s Office’s official B.Tuvshintugs denied the public speculation and confirmed that traffic restrictions remain in place.
“There is no deadline for the traffic restriction. Drivers will still be prevented from participating in the city’s vehicle traffic once a week in the future. What we talked about changing was reducing the active hours of restriction, following the suggestions of residents, as the winter has come.”
He added, “The Ulaanbaatar Metropolitan Police Department requested applying the restriction from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on workdays, instead of the 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. schedule, as part of the public’s request. We will discuss whether to approve the request on Monday at a meeting of the Ulaanbaatar Administration Board.”
