Hung Hom Bay was reclaimed in two steps, the first ended in July 1989, the second one finally in December 1994. During the first phase, the 1979 Hung Hom Pier had to be demolished (done at the end of 1988), a new pier was planned and finally finished by November 1990. 

For the intermediate period, a temporary pier was built. This pier was situated on a small piece of reclaimed land near Hung Hom Bay Centre off todays Hung Hom South Road, a pontoon was moored to the shelter/waiting rooms for boarding.

This temporary pier was in use from the (approximately) fourth quarter of 1988 until the end of 1990/early 1991. After decommission, this place was reclaimed and the pier vanished.
