What if Your New Housing Complex Encroached on a Highway?


There’s no denying that China doesn’t have the best record when it comes to urban planning and development, particularly in regards to real estate—and their most recent blunder is a doozy. Thanks to some poor planning and (presumably poor) communication, China accidentally built a brand new set of modern apartments right in the middle of an eight-lane highway. Your very own permanent, honking sound soother.

The whole thing started when a block of residents in Xi’an, Shaanxi province in western China were uprooted to make room for a soon-to-be-constructed public park. In exchange for the inconvenience, tenants were promised a brand new, block of modern apartments—it’s just too bad city planners forgot about that little eight-lane superhighway they were going to build in the exact same place. Whoops.
