Hill Street, SingaporeHill Street, Singapore (13 September, 2010)



Hill Street is a major road in downtown Singapore. It connects Victoria Street on the north side to New Bridge Road on the south. The road got its name because it is located on the foot of Government Hill - as Fort Canning was known during the time of Stamford Raffles. Hill Street was one of the earliest roads to be built in Singapore, around the same time as North Bridge Road.
