Ulaanbaatar prepares for Tsagaan Sar-Lunar New Year

Ger areas illuminated
New lights are being set in ger areas in accordance with an Ulaanbaatar mayor's resolution on measures to be taken in preparation for the national holiday-Tsagaan Sar. Streets and road lighting in ger areas were checked thoroughly and locations where new lights were needed were defined beforehand. Some ten locations in the Bayanzurkh, Songino-Khairkhan and Khan-Uul districts were found to be in need of new illumination. On 21-22 January new LED lights of 50 watts were set in 8 streets around Bayankhoshuu's last bus stop area.
New lighting is being placed on the existing electric poles, which enables saving time and money, reported the capital's department of press and public relations. There are over 28 thousand lights in six central districts of the capital and seven companies are in charge of lighting under the control of the Ulaanbaatar Governor's office. Because ger areas expand their boundaries every year due to migration from the countryside, ger areas lack illumination.According to police reports, crime occurs more on unlight streets in the evening and nighttime. Last year all districts of the capital were connected to a united system of lighting and work to replace yellow bulbs to LED lights started, because yellow bulbs break easily when voltage falls.

Public cleaning campaign
On January 18, a public cleaning campaign ran in the capital. Over 32 thousand persons from public organizations, companies and schools and colleges participated actively in the campaign, cleaning a total of 119.2 ha sites. They removed trash and debris that accumulated in the streets and cleaned icy roads and pedestrian walkways. The Ulaanbaatar Governor's office reported that 3.123 tonnes of garbage, which is 1.5 times more than usual days, were transported to trash dumpint sites on this day. 
Garbage pick-up frequency increase before Tsagaan Sar and follow the holiday schedule during Tsagaan Sar.
