The residential quarters surrounded by urban roads or railway facilities are easily affected by traffic noise, dust and hybrid traffic flow. Entrance and the buildings of the quarters are kept away from the railway and urban roads within the required distance. As affordable houses for ordinary railway staff, the purchase power and affordability of them were especially considered in planning and design, in the hope of creating life space and place suitable for the railway staff.
