From the Hong Kong Annual Report 1968
In Kowloon, the half-mile long Lai Chi Kok Bridge was completed and opened to traffic in October. The bridge and newly completed Kwai Chung Road provide a fast direct link between western Kowloon and Kwai Chung/Tsuen Wan, thereby relieving congestion on Castle Peak Road with its relatively steep gradients.
Originally, the bridge ran over Lai Chi Kok Bay. The bay was reclaimed in the 1990's.
