340 km road planned for western Mongolia

Mongolia Energy Corp has selected two Chinese contractors to improve a 340 km road in western Mongolia.

The contractors, China Airport Construction Group's North East Construction Agency and Xinjiang Construction & Engineering's Highway & Bridge Engineering Co., will handle the $126 million project.

The new road, to improve the existing Khushuut Road, will support Mongolia Energy mining projects, a company official said.

Expected to take six months, the new road will allow 60-ton trucks to travel at 60 km per hour. The road will supply the Xinjiang market with coking coal.
