Liu To Bridge (traditional Chinese: 寮肚橋; simplified Chinese: 寮肚桥; pinyin: Liáodù Qiáo; Cantonese Yale: liu4 tou5 kiu4) is a bridge over the valley of Liu To, Tsing Yi Island, Hong Kong. It is part of Tsing Yi Road West. Built between 1985 and 1987, it spans 175 m (574 ft) and is a 3-span bridge with dual 2-lane road. The structure is numbered N547 by Hong Kong Government.

As Liu To is a steep-side valley, in order to avoid temporary work on the valley floor, twin prestressed concrete boxes were stacked incrementally during the construction to provide a short section across the valley.
