Masonry Bridge of Pok Fu Lam Reservoir [1871- ]
Antiquities and Monuments Ordinance (Cap. 53) Antiquities and Monuments (Declaration of Monuments and Historical Buildings) (Consolidation) (Amendment) Notice 202
The Masonry Bridge is situated at the east end of the reservoir and carries Pok Fu Lam Reservoir Road, which runs along the northern side of the reservoir. It spans the mouth of one of the feeder streams that run off the surrounding hillsides. It is built of granite and features an elegant semi-circular arch. The bridge is neatly finished with granite copings with chamfered margins and reticulated surfaces. The road surface on top of the bridge has been paved with cement. This bridge, together with the other four masonry bridges on Pok Fu Lam Reservoir Road, provide not only indispensable linkage with the reservoir’s other waterworks facilities, but also the access for maintenance and visitation.
On May 13th, 2020, the bridge was declared to be a monument under the Antiquities and Monuments Ordinance (Cap. 53).
Addendum: four other masonry bridges along Pok Fu Lam Reservoir Road had already been declared monuments in 2009, see here..
