Ulaanbaatar Darkhan Road Expansion Project – FIDIC Engineering Supervision

The Government of Mongolia received a loan from EBRD to finance the expansion of the existing 204.5 km road from the capital city Ulan Bator to the city of Darkhan. This is one of the country’s busiest roads, located on the corridor China – Mongolia – Russia. The 2 lane road was in a dire state, with at least nine sections characterized by frequent car accidents.

To alleviate this situation the road will be rehabilitated and a parallel two-lane road will be constructed. IRD Engineering conducts supervision services in accordance with FIDIC Conditions of Contract (Red Book), the existing tender documentation, as well as with the relevant local legislation on construction.

The project is divided in 5 lots, comprising the construction of a new 2-lane road, including roundabouts, U-turns and stopping areas; the provision of road furniture; the construction of crossings over eight railways; the construction and rehabilitation of bridges and culverts; and the rehabilitation of toll booths.
