Plans are in hand in Mongolia for a series of road development works within the next four years. The programme calls for the construction of 2,022km of surfaced roads. In addition, new concrete bridges will be built under these plans.
At present, a plan is being carried out for 2,000km of roads being built during 2020.
Financing for this new programme will be delivered through a combination of state funding, loans from international sources and by Public-Private-Partnerships (PPPs).
New stretches of highway will connect Darkhan with Altanbulag and Nalaikh with Bayan, featuring two lanes in either directions. The 58km road linking capital Ulaanbatar with Uvurkhangai will be improved, as will the 127km route connecting Bayankhongor with Gobi-Altai. Construction will also be carried out on the 67km route connecting Tosontsengel with Uliastai.
