City planners built a railway station in the building, from the sixth to eighth floors. Residents can hop on the train from their own Liziba station. A light railway track has been built to go through a hole in a residential 19-storey building in China, a bid to solve the space crisis in the city of Chongqing, China. The city of Chongqing in the south-east of the country has a population of 49 million packed into 31,000 square miles, causing urban planners to look creatively at solving space issues.

A special railway station was built into the block of houses, set into the sixth to eighth floors. Residents can hop on Chongqing Rail Transit No.2 at their own Liziba station. Even though they are living in close quarters to a busy train station, any noise has been muffled by special equipment.
