Holland-Bukit Timah Group Representation Constituency.

Holland-Bukit Timah Group Representation Constituency (Traditional Chinese: 荷蘭-武吉知馬集選區;Simplified Chinese: 荷兰-武吉知马集选区) is a four-member Group Representation Constituency located in the central, western and northern areas of Singapore. The Group Representation Constituency has not received a contest since it was formed in 2006.

Originally known as the Holland-Bukit Panjang Group Representation Constituency, it was renamed to its present name due to the Bukit Panjang ward of the GRC being carved out to form a Single Member Constituency. The Bukit Timah Single Member Constituency was absorbed and became part of the GRC.

Holland-Bukit Timah GRC is led by Minister for the Environment and Water Resources Dr Vivian Balakrishnan.

A large portion of Holland-Bukit Timah GRC is made up of jungle and nature reserve, namely the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and the Central Catchment Nature Reserve.
