Provincial roads reopened


Several roads on route to provinces from Ulaanbaatar were temporarily closed on Saturday, following a blizzard that blew snow on roads at wind speeds of 18 to 20 meters per second.
Roads to Darkhan-Uul, Orkhon and Selenge Provinces were closed at 11:00 p.m. on Friday until 7:00 a.m. the following day, while roads to Dornod, Sukhbaatar, Khentii and Dornogovi Provinces were closed from 7:00 a.m. Saturday until 7:00 a.m. on Sunday to prevent accidents.
Deputy Minister and Chief of the State Special Commission, U.Khurelsukh, issued an order to close the roads, while emergency management agency’s operated under full preparedness in case of further disaster and accidents.
The Traffic Police Department advised drivers travelling to and from provinces to drive cautiously as the roads are still slippery from the blizzard, although they opened shortly after being closed.
