China: An innovative design that makes a train possible to run over a 19-story structure and is adequately accessible for the locals
Residents must hurriedly arrive at Liziba Station to board the Chongqing Rail Transit No. 2 since it arrives on the sixth or eighth floor.
49 million people live in Chongqing, also known as “Mountain City,” a city with many tall skyscrapers and a total area of 31,000 square miles.
As a result, engineers must be exceedingly inventive to develop such methods that accommodate each individual
China is the nation that adopts new technology and product developments the fastest across practically all industries. In our busy world, getting to work early can include going to the metro station to take the train to the workplace.
Chongqing therefore came up with a plan to help its inhabitants by putting the newest technology at their doorstep.
Residents may easily catch the train and save valuable time thanks to the transit station, an ingenious invention inside a 19-story structure that a train passes through.
For residents to board the Chongqing Rail Transit No.2 at Liziba Station, they must go to the sixth or eighth floor. There are 49 million people living in the 31,000 square mile city. So, city engineers and railway officials must devise solutions that will simplify life for their constituents.

Also, in 2004 while Chongqing was building a new rail line, the city was so overrun with construction that the transportation authorities had to decide whether to find a solution or demolish the apartment complex.
Consequently, rather than installing a station that goes above, below, or around the apartments, the authorities chose to build one that travels through a building.
Some claim that such a choice would lower the cost of housing in that location. As opposed to this, Odditty Central reports that the opposite is true and that this is proof that “the building’s station has increased the price of apartments because it makes public transportation so conveniently accessible.”
The train is only expected to make roughly 60 decibels of noise throughout its travel, which makes the rail line’s lack of noise pollution its strongest feature.
Yuan Cheng, a spokeswoman for the municipal transport department, stated that “our city is quite heavily built upon, which can make finding place for roads, and railway lines, a major challenge” back in 2004 when it first opened. Since space on the ground is limited, we must consider going beneath or over.
In a metropolis this fast-paced, people wanted to get around rapidly. It was a risk to extend the railway line in this manner, but it was profitable.
