Went to the place where we believed it should be today, but it's been turned into a sidewalk among some flyover...if it somewhere near the lamppost CE0278.

Can't help on this one. It was completely buried except for a small portion of the left wall, which allowed a camera to be lowered to get a photo. There was a set of concrete steps leading up from the old road which gave access over the water department gutters, the PB being to the right (going up) of the steps about half-way to the top. I have not been in the area since the new developement has gone up.

Is there a name for the old road, is it the Tai Po Road or the Shatin Heights Road?
At another day, we tried to reach it by climbing up restricted stairs from Chik Wan Street, not going through the tunnel anymore ... Still no trace of it.

It is/was above the old Tai Po Road, before all the fancy overpasses changed everything. The restricted stairs started just above it, and led up towards the single house at the top of the hill, now replaced by a new housing group. The PB was to the right of the stairs, going up, between them and the old Riding School, now another new housing estate. All changed.
