Value of urban land space!

The Meaklong Market in Bangkok, which has a railroad passing right through the center of the market, must be one of the most extreme manifestations of the value attached to land space in urban areas. The videos show how the vendors manage their business without conceding any exclusive space for the trains which passes through eight times a day.

This pics must have been taken just before the train arrived.. Look at the free space between the rails :)

Oh.. I thought that was a photo.. Hence the wrong comment.. People are really using the space between tracks..


Indian railway could lease the space between tracks and make some money..
