Man Kam To Control Point
|Man Kam To Control Point|
Man Kam To Control Point (Chinese: 文錦渡管制站) is a border control point in Man Kam To, New Territories, Hong Kong, within the Closed Area on the border with Mainland China. It was the first vehicular clearance border crossing in Hong Kong. Its counterpart across the border is the "Wenjindu Port", located within Luohu District, Shenzhen, Guangdong Province.
Until 1985, when the Sha Tau Kok border crossing opened, Man Kam To Control Point was the only vehicular link between Hong Kong and China.
A second concrete bridge, located slightly upriver, was completed in 1984.
As part of the Sham Chun River training works, a new four-lane bridge was built in 2003. Both of the older bridges were demolished at this time.
