Shau Kei Wan Road in 2013
Shau Kei Wan Road (traditional Chinese: 筲箕灣道; simplified Chinese: 筲箕湾道; pinyin: Shāojīwān Dào; Cantonese Yale: saau1 gei1 waan1 dou6), formerly known as Shaukiwan Road, is the main road in Shau Kei Wan and Sai Wan Ho, Hong Kong.
In 1935, the section between the east end of Causeway Road in Causeway Bay and Tai Kat Street near the East Gate of Taikoo Dockyard (present-day Taikoo Shing) was renamed to King's Road for the silver jubilee of the ascendent of George V of the United Kingdom. At the same time, the section from the junction of Causeway Road and King's Road to Power Street was renamed as Electric Road while the section between King's Road and Electric Road as Tung Lo Wan Road.
The road is shared by Hong Kong Tramways all the way until it reaches Shau Kei Wan Main Street East.
