Highway construction project begins next month

By M.ZOLJARGAL

 

The building of Mongolia’s first highway in will launch next month, as part of the Street Project implemented by the Ministry of Economic Development. The official inauguration was scheduled for last week but was postponed for unknown reasons. Below are details from the Street Project’s Operation Service Chief, S.Gongor.

-Can you talk about why the original launch was postponed?

-The Tuul River Highway is ready for the first stage of construction. However, the launch was postponed due to environmental concerns for the Tuul River, as the highway construction starting point is located close to the river’s source, surrounded by dense bushes. As a result, we had to reformulate a detailed plan.

-Then when will the project begin?

-Highway construction will launch next month.

-What companies were selected to execute the construction? When will Ulaanbaatar residents be able to drive on the highway?

-Constructing a highway requires special skills. Besides, it is the first highway project ever undertaken in Mongolia. Mongolian road companies will operate in partnership to execute the project. The first-ever highway of the Tuul River, and the central junction of its supporting highways, will be operational in 2015, which will allow further highway construction connected to the central junction.
