33 Suspension bridge – HK Island to Lei Yue Mun, 1970s

HF: The SCMP of 30th January 2016 contained a letter from R Coates of Lai Chi Kok about the HK Government’s current and future major infrastructure proposals.

The letter says, “…I look forward to the rebirth of the Lei Yue Mun suspension bridge project, aborted in the 1970s because the towers would have interfered with Kai Tak radar”.

I would have thought such a bridge would have interferred with planes taking off from the airport. Full stop.

Can anyone supply further details?
