After 30 mil­lion USD in con­ces­sional loans from China and nine months of con­struc­tion, the new Yar­mag bridge opened with a cer­e­mony on July 9.

The 250-me­ter Tuul River based bridge was built by the China Rail­way No.2 Group and the Mon­go­lian-Ger­man joint com­pany SRP En­gi­neer Con­sult­ing Mon­go­lia LLC acted as a con­sul­tant to the project.

With three times the ca­pac­ity of the new bridges, the new Yar­mag bridge has a guar­an­teed life­time of 50 to 60 years. Traf­fic is ex­pected to de­crease by 50 to 60 per­cent with the new bridges. A 8.5-me­ter tall and 270 me­ter wide ramp will al­low cars to not in­ter­sect when go­ing over the bridge. The ramp bridge will in­ter­sect the Yar­mag road on the back of the Bogd Khaan Moun­tain by two lev­els with a new in­ter­sec­tion to the south.
