Duxton Hill, Singapore
(11 July, 2011)
is a hill road in the Tanjong Pagar area of downtown Singapore. It starts at Tanjong Pagar Road, forms an intersection with Duxton Road before ending at a sort of cul de sac
at the Singapore Institute of Architects. The section beyond the Duxton Road intersection is quite steep.
The hill of the same name, along with the road, and the neighbouring Duxton Road
and Craig Road
were all once a nutmeg plantation belonginig to Dr JW Montgomerie, who arrived in Singapore in 1819, and was later the Assistant Surgeon to the Singapore colonial government.
Duxton Hill was only developed after Duxton Road and Craig Road1
. It was at the center of a slum area inhabited by coolies and rickshaw pullers until it was gentrified after Independence.
