Given the clamour for a new road to the NT, I guess the photo has to do with the commencment of the Route TWSK Project.The pimply hill may be this one here

this is the famous Kwun Yam Shan. I'm sure one of the former soldiers who has posted on Gwulo said he and his fellow soldiers called it "Betty Grable's nipple" :)

From the angle this looks like the Lam Tsuen valley looking southwest towards the gap that leads into Pat Heung, which would mean this is most likely Lam Kam Road.

Thanks Phil for the clarification.
