Since the 1920s, there had been many proposals made for a vehicular ferry service between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. In Octobe 1930, Government gave approval for the construction of ferry piers in the vicinity of Jubilee Street, Praya Central and at the end of Jordan Road on Kowloon side. The ferry piers were completed in 1932 and the cross-harbour vehicular ferry service commenced the following year.
