Ger district residents build a model street


With a 13.6 million MNT financing provided by the Asia Foundation, Selbe 46 Street of the 21st Khoroo of Bayanzurkh District was recently upgraded to promote exemplary design of ger district streets.

The redevelopment project was completed in collaboration with the residents and a task force assigned by the Ulaanbaatar Governor in charge the redevelopment of Dari Ekh and the area surrounding Tsaiz Market.

Before it was upgraded, the Selbe 46 Street would often become impossible to walk on due to mud and slide caused by heavy rain and snow. Now the street has been covered by gravel stone, and garbage bin, lightings, and pedestrian path was installed.

All the households residing in the street renovated their fences and planted trees. A small garden will be build on the street by next spring.

Residents who took part in the upgrade said they were content with the outcome. On residents said, “We have completed quite a lot in a very short time. We worked since October 15. We hope other ger district residents in Ulaanbaatar will renovate their living area like our street.”

The head of the task force devoted to ger district redevelopment in the area, A.Mishigdorj commented, “We have chosen one of the ger district streets with the highest need for renovation and turned it into a model street. The members of “Taliin Setgel Nukhurlul” non-governmental organization of the residents of 21st Khoroo have supported our project. A surveillance camera has been also installed to ensure proper maintenance and security of the street. We will be open to  receive requests to cooperate in similar street renovation projects from other ger district residents.”.
