House in the Middle of a Motorway (8 pics)

Pics | 23 Nov, 2012 | Views: 14372 |  +36   |  

One Chinese couple has refused to sell their house because they thought that the government's relocation compensation was not enough. Now the building stands in the middle of the road and the car drivers have to drive around it.

Marul Kaza KL.... In the U.S. that would not happen. perhaps where you hail from? I am suprised the Communist Chinese allowed that to stay, there must be an ulterior motive. Look at all the land they took for their humungous hydro-electric project. nothing stood in the way of that project.

adzhoe - Your government can take your land any time they want for fair market value. Obviously, you wouldn't be "detained", but you would be out on the street. It's called expropriation. Look it up.

You don't seriously think China didn't need the Three Gorges Dam? Some of the greatest natural disasters in the history of mankind have been due to flooding of the Yangtze river. People knock China on it's pollution as a coal-based society, and this dam has allowed China to fulfill 10% of her electrical needs using clean energy. There is such a thing as sacrificing for the greater good: where your individual rights are not as important as the rights of the many.

There's a dry cleaning business in my town that refused to take the city buyout for a road widening project...

After 2 years of legal proceedings, the city went ahead and did the rest of the road widening and then finally, expropriating the parking stalls in front of this business and paved a parking lot for them at the side.

I hope the inconvenience of hundreds of thousands of people made up for their horseshit... And the thing is - I drive by that dry cleaning business all the time and that parking lot is empty. So I guess the people have spoken in a "democratic" society.

Jeeze, just how little did the government offer for the guy to turn it down, considering what a sh*thole that building seems to be?

Jimmy,of course you are correct, we call that " eminent domain law" in the states. Anything can be taken for the greater good in due time and court proceedings.Thank you for responding, I enjoyed reading what you had to say. Seen the same thing where i live, they closed down a popular corner lot open air fruit stand, the city used eminent domain, forced the sale for a project, that lot is still fenced and vacant, six years later.
