The Road crews have not arrived yet to commence the rebuilding and patch up jobs on the road(they are due this month).
However this road is in the best condition I have ever seen it in, even though it is just after the wet season and it has not been graded.
This is where the road weaves through a bit of hilly country and many of the washouts occur.
Nathan Road, Hong Kong - IgoUgo Reviews (479 words)
Nathan Road, named after governor Sir Matthew Nathan, runs directly up to Boundary Street, the northern limit of the British colony prior to the leasing of the New Territories in 1898.
Since everyone thought such a wide road was unnecessary at that time, Nathan Road became known as 'Nathan's Folly.' Today, this is one of the busiest commercial roads in Hong Kong; the lower end of the road is known as the Golden Mile because of the plethora of storefront neon signs.
Nathan Road has tons of photography and electronics stores up and down the street, but you'll find that the prices are surprisingly more expensive than back home in the United States.
