Hong Kah North Single Member Constituency (Chinese: 丰加北单选区; Malay: Kawasan Undi Perseorangan Hong Kah North; Tamil: ஹொங் கா நார்த் தனித்தொகுதி) is a Single-Member Constituency in the Western Part of Singapore. Formerly a ward of Hong Kah GRC throughout the ward's existence, from 1991 to 2011, it was crafted out as a SMC during the 2011 elections.
This constituency covers the western areas of Singapore, consisting of Wenya (Jurong West), Bukit Gombak and Tengah (currently planned future housing estate, now it is a military live firing restricted area).
Together with Chua Chu Kang GRC, it is currently under the management of Chua Chu Kang Town Council. Prior to the 2011 general election, a five-year plan was introduced by PAP, which plan includes replacing current bus stops (those orange-white type used in the 1990s) along Jurong West Avenue 5 and 3, at the constituency, with new modern bus stops (those grey ones used in the 2000s).
In the 2011 general election, this ward gave the People's Action Party a strong mandate of 70.6% despite the national average dropping to 60.1%. Sin Kek Tong also received the second lowest percentage of votes from all candidates, behind another candidate Desmond Lim who took a share of 4.45% of the votes in Punngol East SMC during a three-cornered fight.
