Fengshan Single Member Constituency (Chinese: 凤山单选区; Malay: Kawasan Undi Perseorangan Fengshan; Tamil: ஃபெங்ஷான் தனித் தொகுதி) is a Single Member Constituency within Bedok, Singapore. It was carved from Bedok division prior to the 1984 general election as the population in Bedok grew and absorbed into the then greater three-member ward Bedok Group Representation Constituency before 1991 general election and Bedok GRC had become a four-member ward. It was reformed just before the 2015 general election after being carved out from East Coast Group Representation Constituency.
