Stonecutters Island

Stonecutters Island or Ngong Shuen Chau (Chinese: 昂船洲)

The island was connected to the Kowloon peninsula by the West Kowloon Reclamation in the 1990s to provide land for the construction of the road and railway network to the new Hong Kong International Airport at Chek Lap Kok, and for the Container Terminal 8 of Kwai Tsing Container Terminals.

Stonecutter's Island is the site of a large sewage treatment facility known as Stonecutters Island Sewage Treatment Works. Since the facility was built in 2001, it has managed to reduce the amount of E. coli in the water by 99 percent, while other pollutants are reduced by 70-80 percent, allowing coral to return to Victoria Harbour and made Hong Kong's beaches safe for swimming again.

Also, the Stonecutters Bridge, a cable-stayed bridge which would link up the Kowloon peninsula with the Tsing Yi Island to form part of Route 8, is presently under construction on the island and is scheduled to complete in 2009.

fantastic! :party: The port area is amazing, and I am assuming that the bridge is on a diagonal, so that is why it wasn't shown much? That is the number one thing that bugs me about sc4... :dead:

Anyway, I am always watching for more from you :thumb:
