Cycling in Ulaanbaatar is sometimes a scary experience, due to the combination of manic car and truck drivers and the absence cycle lanes. This, however, is changing under a master plan for modernising the roads in Ulaanbaatar by 2030. According to Mayor S.Amarsaikhan, 52 km of long bicycle road connecting Yarmag –Zaisan Village –Marshall Bridge will open 10 June. Furthermore, 7.2 km of long bicycle and pedestrian paths connecting the Marshal Bridge–Gachuurt Village–Uliastai Bridge with resting posts and lighting will open on 10 June.
At public request, UB administration will build cycle lanes meeting international standards separately alongside the following roads:
Tavan Shar-Sapporo- Bayanburd – Mongolian State University of Education – Eastern Crossroad Intersection – Officer House – Yarmag Bridge – Marshal Bridge – Zaisan Bridge –Sky Resort – Bayanzurkh Auto Post – Nalaikh.
For those people, who don’t know the Mongolian capital, that is pretty much most of Ulaanbaatar!
