Two aerial photographs of the overhead ropeway at Green Island Cement Company.

Upper photo from 1963
Lower photo from 1969

Possibly for land sale of parts of their site near Ma Tau Wei Road the ropeway was modified. The ropeway was not just shortened, but also moved some 10 meters to the southeast. This can be seen on this photo  where the situation from 1963 is compared to the one in 1969.

The ropeway was moved closer to the productions halls/sheds. For better visualization, the track of the older ropeway is illustrated by the red line on the lower part of the photo.
