Mayor of Ulaanbaatar D.Sumiyabazar met with the governors of six districts of the capital city and reviewed plans for building pedestrian and bicycle paths and green facility infrastructure next year. For instance, in Songinokhairkhan District, 1,234 unauthorized garages were vacated this year and the construction of pedestrian and cycling paths has started. The Khan-Uul District authorities presented their plan to build an Eco corridor.

During the meeting, the Policy Research and Analysis Center of Ulaanbaatar provided information on the existing bicycle and pedestrian paths, as well as short-term planning on how to increase them and reduce traffic congestion. According to research, there are 31.4 kilometers of bicycle paths in the city center. However, there are issues such as these roads being cut off and not being connected to each other. Therefore, the study revealed that 31.5 kilometers of pedestrian and bicycle paths are needed to connect them and create conditions for people to go to work by bicycle.

At the end of the meeting, the mayor tasked the district governors to prepare a plan on green facilities, pedestrian and cycling paths and present the unified plan after 14 days.
