Hi there,

I could not remember exactly where was the old pier.   There used to be both a passenger ferry pier and a vehicular pier there.  The marker's location is just an approximation.  The pier was gone when Aldrich Bay was filled up for redevelopment in early 1980's.

Best Regards,

Hi there,

I have not been to Disco Bay for over 20 years.  But I remember they had such a facility before they have highway access basically for residents' moving in or out.  Yaumati Ferry used to have  special arrangements with the developer for such ferry  service.  Don't know if the pier had been demolished or not.  The marker above is just an approximate location.  Correction welcome.

Any updates concerning if the pier is still there are welcomed as well.

Best Regards,

Green Island Cement Pier, Kennedy Town [????- ]

The photos below show a dramatic accident that happened here in 1981, when MV Sunshine Island collided with the pier.

We think this is where the pier was - corrections welcome.

A strange thing is that the pier still appears on Google's map view, but there's no sign of it on the satellite view.

The freighter Sunshine Island hit a pier off Kennedy Town. Fishermen on the pier were casualties. This was not during a typhoon.
