In earlier years on Gwulo, the Kai Tak runway crossing over what was known as Sai Kung Road or Clearwater Bay Road, but now Choi Hung road was discussed.
Disappointingly, few photographs have surfaced showing this crossing in action. There are only two on Gwulo as far as I am aware.
The ‘poor’ image just posted shows the crossing in operation with an airliner passing over the main road, and lower right, traffic held up as it passes.
Unfortunately, the picture is a ‘screen grab’ from 1950s film stock that later was transferred to domestic VHS tape and recopied an unknown number of times.
20 years ago, I obtained my VHS copy of the complete documentary film that shows how the new 1958 runway pointing out to sea was designed, developed and built.
A very interesting film with many aerial views of 1950s Kowloon, especially of the number of hills and unpopulated areas under the proposed flight path.
