Road ecology blog: Livestock crossing along road from Oyu Tolgoi (mine site) to Gashuun Sukhait (border Mongolia/China), Gobi, Ömnögovi, Mongolia.

Livestock crossing along road from Oyu Tolgoi (mine site) to Gashuun Sukhait (border Mongolia/China), Gobi, Ömnögovi, Mongolia. A livestock crossing consists of a very gradual slope on both sides of the road (perhaps about 10-20 m wide (road length) at selected locations. These types of livestock crossings were requested by nomadic livestock herders who believe that domesticated Bactrian camels may have trouble crossing the standard slope associated with the road bed.
