小時候聽人說由尖沙咀經彌敦道大埔道,在深水涉嘉敦處沿大埔公路落沙田往大埔粉嶺上水,再沿上水公路經新田往元朗,全程稱為『上路』;另外由尖沙咀經彌敦道大埔道青山道,在荔枝角接青山公路往青山元朗稱為「下路」,上路加下路是環遊新界的主要通道,全長52咪半。標距柱由尖沙咀計起沿上路直到元朗都是以整數咪數立柱,但因為繞上下路一週多出半咪,經過元朗後仍然是逆時針地依整數咪位置立柱,但咪數卻由尖沙咀經青山公路計咪數,故由元朗沿下路經屯門 ( 以前叫青山 ) 大欖涌深井汀九荃灣荔枝角一大段下路,標距柱多了半咪就是這原因。{記得1咪柱在現在裕華外的彌敦道,2咪柱在旺角彌敦道亞皆老街口附近,大埔道柱林街口是3咪柱,4咪柱不知在青山道何處,估計之後應是青山公路初段的5咪半柱,此外不記得元朗的咪柱是25咪還是25咪半。}

屯門區青山公路大欖段出九龍方向,近屯門公路跨越處尚留一個「15mile」。

重有一個十八咪半舊咖啡灣泳灘。

這些名字都是用來描述沿著青山公路一帶的地方。小時候常聽人說去九咪半和十一咪半游泳﹐估計那裡大概是麗都灣到汀九一帶﹐今天乘32號巴士在青山公路葵涌段卻見到一個寫著六咪半的牌。

我想這些名字應和以前用英哩來量度青山公路不同地點與起點的距離有關。不知道它真正的歷史是怎麼樣呢?除了六﹐九和十一外﹐還有以前還沒有其他數字的描述呢?

You already knew the rule: the distance from the starting point of Castle Peak Road in Sham Shui Po, measured in miles.
In those early Bristish days there are not many landmarks and names of places, and the milestones every half an mile is used by people to describe a location. I am not sure how many of those old milestones along Castle Peak Road still stand today. 9 and a half mile of Castle Peak Road is around today's 麗城花園. Approach Bay is around 10 and a half mile. Over 20 years ago my dad did take me to swim there, and it was how he called the bay.
In fact this description is also used for Tai Po Road, and I still seen some milestones in Lantau South Road and Sai Kung's Hiram's Highway.
