This book focuses on a crucial internal problem—Hong Kong’s post-war road development from 1946 to present. Observations are made on road development in the post-war period and its impact on the city’s development through the study of areas such as the building and expansion of road network; the establishment and operation mechanisms of the departments responsible for road works; and the formulation, implementation and promotion of transport policy. This allows us to undertake further assessment of issues such as the characteristics of post-war urbanisation in Hong Kong, population distribution and land use, and inter-relationships between internal social changes and the city’s rapid development, with an expectation that this would serve as reference for the city’s further development.
