Central swimming pool ceiling collapses

By M.ZOLJARGAL

A part of the ceiling at the Water Sports Training Center (WSTC), more commonly known as the Central Swimming Pool, broke and fell  into the pool at around 12 a.m. on Monday.

The director of the center, G.Arslan, reported through his Facebook page, “The WSTC has been operating for 28 years non-stop without a complete overhaul. Therefore, its building is in a critical condition, and the corroded metal parts of its ceiling fell down. We are currently only able to operate only the small pool of the center.”

“Since I was appointed as the director of the center on October 5 last year, I have sent official requests for urgent maintenance and reconstruction to the Ulaanbaatar administrations several times and met a few high ranking officials, but I haven’t yet received a response,” he added.

Finally G.Arslan said, “I heard a report on Saturday that the officials are planning to demolish the building. I don’t know whether it is true or not. The city administration might be interested in the center’s land potential for housing projects. As I majored in construction engineering in Germany, I know for certain that the center’s premise is of high quality and persistence.”
