Road Built Around House, Family Refuses to Leave

Luo Baogen and his wife refuse to leave their home in Wenling, Zhejiang, China because they believe that the relocation compensation offered by the government is not enough money for them to rebuild. The couple has been living in the half-demolished building on their own (all of their neighbours have since moved out). Because the family has not left, cars must drive around the 5-story building while they remain living inside. The road leads to Wenling railway station, which has not yet been officially opened.
