2. Stonecutters Bridge

The Stonecutters Bridge constituting a major part of Route 8 between Tsing Yi and Cheung Sha Wan, has a very distinctive feature derived from its unique design. While looking up from underneath the bridge, the bridge frame has a striking resemblance to film negatives in the shape of boxes that are usually seen on them.

The Ting Kau Bridge is best visible from the Ting Kau Beach. It features a visually pleasing, fan-like design with cables running from its towers to the bridge deck. Close to the Tsing Ma Bridge, the Ting Kau Bridge connects the Hong Kong International Airport in Lantau Island to the rest of the city and is one of the longest cable bridges between the New Territories and Mainland-Hong Kong.
