Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/ A regular meeting of the Council of Governor of the Capital City was held on August 9, discussing some matters regarding constructional works and repair works of roads and streets destroyed by last month’s heavy rains in Ulaanbaatar city.

Reviewing the result of road and street damage inspections on 86 sites throughout the city, the council decided to fund approximately MNT 1 billion on repairs.

In addition, some individuals and entities illegally settled down by blocking flood drainage and flood protection dam, which triggered damages of some roads. In regard with this matter, Governor of the Capital City S.Batbold instructed to take urgent measures to repair the roads and relocate these households and entities that illegally settled down.

“Further, districts should set up own active repair groups to restore little damages of roads, residential areas and trenches. Households and entities that settled down in high flood risk areas without a permit have to be relocated. The eligible areas where these households are possible to settle need to be agreed with district Governors,” said Governor S.Batbold.

Moreover, he assigned the authority of the Auto Road Development Department of Ulaanbaatar to make a risk assessment on roads and complete a research on areas where flood protection dams must be built. Then required money will be budgeted in Ulaanbaatar City Budget 2019.
