Tai Po Road is one of the earliest major roads in the New Territories, built in 1902. In the early 20th century and until the Lion Rock Tunnel, the first road tunnel in Hong Kong, was built in 1967, Tai Po Road was the main road connecting Tai Wai and the New Territories to Kowloon. Before the construction of the Fanling Highway in the 1980s, the road connected Fanling and Sheung Shui.
