Highway through a building


The Japanese engineers found an ingenious way to make the best use of the available space when they built the exit of the Hanshin Highway through the Gate Tower building in Fukushima-ku, Osaka. The exit passes between the fifth and seventh floors of the building. The elevators pass through these floors without stopping. There is a structure that surrounds the part of the highway passing through the building to protect the building from noise.
