(GPS: 1.35902, 103.76367) is a township (or "planning area" in local nomenclature) in central western Singapore
. It is bounded by Bukit Batok Road to the west and the Pan Island Expressway (PIE)
to the south. Surrounding Bukit Batok is Choa Chu Kang
in the northwest, Bukit Panjang
in the northeast, Bukit Timah
in the southeast, Clementi to the south, Jurong East to the southwest and Tengah to the west.
The planning area of Bukit Batok comprises nine neighbourhoods (called "subzones") namely Brickworks, Bukit Batok Central, Bukit Batok East, Bukit Batok South, Bukit Batok West, Gombak, Guilin, Hillview and Hong Kah North.
There are several versions as to how Bukit Batok got its name, particularly the word "batok". The most straightforward explanation is that the word "batok" means "cough" in Malay, and opened the speculation that the cold hill air of the hill leads to coughs and colds. Another version is that the word "batok" means "coconut" in Javanese. Yet another explanation is that the word "batok" is a corruption of the word "batu".
