DASH Sandag (89
years old), a Meritorious Worker of the Road Construction of Mongolia
I was demobilized from the army in 1950, I was employed in the stone crushing
and gravel preparing factory located in the place Uuliin Nuur (former name is Chuluun
Toochig) and worked in charge for equipment and tools of the prisoners who
prepared the stones by crushing them in this place and received those stones by
measuring. Those prisoners were placed in semi-whole shelters named “Zemlyak”
in that place and they worked from 7AM to 9PM. Between 12PM – 13PM, they made
blasting and released the rocks and stones
this place, 1000 cubic meters of crushed stones were prepared by the force of
the Japanese soldiers who were captured during the war of 1946 and those
crushed stones were required in constructing the road on the west of the
National University of Mongolia, and also, 11,000 cubic meters of crushed
stones required to construct the Sukhbaatar square were prepared in this place
in 1946 and 1947. Moreover, when constructing the 15 km of long road from
Central Post Office until the Airport, the gravels were taken from here. In the
beginning, they made the blasting and sometimes shot by the artillery and
prepared and collected the released stones using the forces and labors of many
were good traffic road engineers and professionals were among the Japanese
soldiers and thus, I think that they recognized the quality of the stones of
this place and started using them.
