Hi,

That picture must have been taken somewhere in Kowloon. Large tunnel sections can be seen. Can someone help me please to identify that location. Thanks a lot

Hi There,

I believe this was the Cross Harbour Tunnel\Hung Hom Railway Terminus sites, still under reclaimation.  Many familiar landmarks around the area:

- the original HK Polytechnic buildings

- Homantin hills

- Hung Hom Bay on the upper right

Agree with Thomas, this is the site where the cross harbour tunnel will be built, see this photo:

1971 Construction cross harbour tunnel
1971 Construction cross harbour tunnel, by Eternal1966

My estimate of a date would be 1969/70.
