The foreign media not only takes this as an anecdote to report, but makes a study of the light railway and his story.

The light railway is line 2, Chongqing light rail, and the scene that goes through block of flats is in  Liziba Station.

Chongqing Rail Transit No.2 and the building have been built across each other, a creative solution for a lack of space in the city packed with skyscrapers.

It’s convenient for residents in the high-rise block, who can hop on the train at Liziba Station, located on the sixth to eighth floor of the building.

The monorail station opened in 2004 in the area known as ‘Mountain City’, due to the area’s extremely hilly terrain.

According to the design team leader Yetianyi, Rail Transit No.2 of Liziba Station entered the trial operation stage in 2004, and went into official operation in 2006.  As early as 1998, his team started this kind of design which is without precedent throughout the country.

Seeing this kind of scene, net friends from home and abroad have a lot of questions, let’s answer one by one.

  • Building or Rail Transit, who comes first?

Based on the introduction of Yetianyi, Liziba Station and the building is designed and built at the same time, in no particular order.

Yetianyi also said that whatever building or railway, once one of them is built first, it is difficult to combine the two.

  • Whether it will induce the microquakes while going through?

Standing on the bridge, we can feel small tremors more or less. Light railway goes through the building, will it affect the building?

Yetianyi explained that light railway and building will not interfere with each other although they seem to be one. When the light railway goes through Liziba Station, different from other stations, the columns support the railway are invisible, they are buried in the lower houses. Counting from the first floor of the building, there are 6 columns, each is about 22 meters in length. While there are more than 90 columns of the building, each is 69 meters in height, they are not together.

  • Will it disturb residents when the train goes through?

According to Yetianyi, the light railway is low noise and low vibration type, with rubber-tired whee, and the whole car body is upheld by air spring, its noise is far lower than the average sound level 75.8 db of urban traffic trunk.

In addition, the light railway uses direct current, and will not create electromagnetic wave.

The foreign net friends are simply shocked by the design.

Why there is such a kind of design, perhaps only going to Chongqing can you understand it. The varied topography makes unparalleled three-dimensional sense.

Therefore, in Chongqing, No.2 train stopping at the eight floor does exists, and GPS is of no use here.

In Chongqing, taking a ride on light rail seems to have experienced roller coaster.
