Not to be confused with the present ward in parts of Punggol called as Punggol East Single Member Constituency which was formed prior to 2011 general elections by craving out from Pasir Ris-Punggol Group Representation Constituency.
Punggol Single Member Constituency ( Traditional Chinese: 榜鵝單選區; Simplified Chinese: 榜鵝单选区) was a former single member constituency in the undeveloped Punggol (Along the line in Punggol Road), from 1959 to 1991.
Formation and dissolution [ edit ]
The ward was part of the newly created
Punggol-Tampines Constituency in 1955, consisting largely of present-day Hougang, Pasir Ris, Punggol, Sengkang, Simei and Tampines. At that time, these were considered rural areas and were some of the least populated areas in Singapore.
1959, that ward had split into Punggol SMC and Tampines SMC. The then-Punggol constituency in 1959 comprised the present day Hougang, Punggol and Sengkang. [1 ]
The constituency continued to grow and
Hougang SMC was spun off in 1988. Punggol was merged into Cheng San GRC in 1991, and the area saw development after 1991 which was much more rapid after 2000.
