Robinson Road, Singapore

Start here
Robinson Road is a major thoroughfare in Singapore's Central Business District. It is a one-way street with traffic flowing from south to north. It starts at Anson Road, at the intersection with Maxwell Road, and ends at Collyer Quay, at the junction with Finlayson Green. In between it forms intersections and junctions with Robinson Road dates back to the 19th century following the 1879 reclamation that filled up Telok Ayer. At the time it was built, Robinson Road was the new waterfront in place of the old shoreline at Telok Ayer Street. Robinson Road would lose its waterfont when the subsequent reclamation of 1932 created Shenton Way.

Robinson Road was named after Sir William C.F. Robinson, the Governor of the Straits Settlements from 1877 to 1879. Since the mid 20th century, Robinson Road has become a prime real estate for skyscrapers. Robinson Road is also known in Hokkien as Heng Long Kay, after a well-known Chinese tycoon, Chop Heng Leong, who had his business operating there.
