Traffic restriction times shift to winter schedule


The Ulaanbaatar City Council (UCC) approved the request of the public to reduced the active hours of traffic restrictions through license plate numbers by three hours. The new schedule started on Monday.
Drivers will be restricted from participating in the city’s vehicle traffic from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for 12 hours once a week, according to winter schedule, instead of the 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
The winter schedule will be effective from October 15 to April 14, while the summer schedule will be effective from April 15 to October 14, as long as the license plate restriction is in place.
The roads where traffic restriction is applied have also been decreased in the winter schedule as shown in the picture above.
The Ulaanbaatar City Hotlines 1800-1200 and 1800-1234 had received many change requests regarding the restriction’s schedule and covering areas from city residents, which influenced the Ulaanbaatar Metropolitan Police Department and a working group of the council on reducing traffic load to submit the winter schedule draft.
The UCC placed the restriction on August 2012 to speed up the traffic flow in the city and encourage residents to use public transport buses.
