In general, road networks of Mongolia have not been developed in accordance with certain theoretical approaches to the transport network and are not economically viable. For instance, the intensity of the road network declines as we move away from Ulaanbaatar. Therefore, it is relevant to analyze and evaluate the current road network and identify opportunities for further development. The purpose of this study is to analyze a Mongolian road network based on the methodology of spatial analysis of the transport network and to identify opportunities for further development. In the spatial analysis of the Mongolian road transport network, the links connecting the nodes are relatively inefficient. Due to the rough terrain in the western part of the country, transportation time and costs have increased. Nodes around Ulaanbaatar have a good level of accessibility, and the further away they are, the lower the level of accessibility.
