Stamford Road, Singapore

Start here
Stamford Road is one of the major roads in downtown Singapore. It was originally called Hospital Road. During the early years, it was known as Lau Chooi Kay, or "water dripping street" in Hokkien, due to the Stamford Canal in its vicinity being prone to overflowing.

Stamford Road was named after the founder of modern Singapore, Stamford Raffles. It is a one-way street beginning at the intersection with Nicoll Highway and the much newer Raffles Avenue, which is also named after Stamford Raffles. It passes the War Memorial Park on the right and the Padang on the left.

The next intersection is with St Andrew's Road and Beach Road. In front is St Andrew's Cathedral on the left and Raffles City on the right. Following that, the subsequent intersection is with North Bridge Road, with the Capitol Building on the left. Continuing pass the North Bridge Road intersection, there is Stamford House on the left before Stamford Road intersects with Hill Street on the left and Victoria Street on the right. Across the intersection, Stamford Court is on the left.

Continuing past the Hill Street/Victoria Street intersection, Stamford Road next makes an intersection with Queen Street. After the intersection, Stamford Road enters the Fort Canning Tunnel. It reemerges on the other side to connect with Orchard Road and then flows into Penang Road.
