Jordan Road is a road in Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It spans from the West Kowloon Highway in West Kowloon, through Ferry Point to Gascoigne Road, and is a major east-west road in southern Kowloon.

Ferry Pier[edit]

At the end of the road, there was the Jordan Road Ferry Pier in Ferry Point, with ferries carrying passengers and vehicles to Central of Hong Kong Island. Until the completion of the Cross-Harbour Tunnel, it was a major transport hub to and from the Hong Kong Island. There was also an important bus terminus, Jordan Road Ferry Pier Bus Terminus, near the pier. The bus terminus hosted many routes to the New Territories. After the completion of major part of reclamation in the West Kowloon, the bus terminus was moved to Jordan (Wui Cheung Road) Bus Terminus in the new reclamation nearby. In 2011-2012, the bus terminus was canceled and the bus mainly change the terminus to Jordan (To Wah Road). Some, go to Kowloon Railway Station. near the Kowloon Station of the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) and the Airport Express. These factors make Jordan Road an important transportation access point.

Station[edit]

Jordan Station of the MTR was named after Jordan Road, between the centres of Yau Ma Tei and Tsim Sha Tsui. The station's name is so commonly used that it has gradually replaced the traditional name, Kwun Chung, for the neighbourhood.
