The Hong Kong Annual Report for the year 1960 refers on page 217:
On 15th January 1960 a temporary vehicular ferry service opened between Rumsey Street and Jordan Road. This service began within less than nine weeks of its conception and gives a supplementary service until the new vehicular ferry piers are ready.

The new temporary pier was built north-west of the existing one. It probably opened at the same time as the one at Rumsey Street. Similar to this one it served single deck vehicular ferries only.
