Singapore 53 - Hougang, Serangoon, Yio Chu Kang, Kovan
The `Rangong' (a bird of the stork species) used to abound in the swamp around the Serangoon River in the old days, thus the name Serangoon Road. The Chinese called Serangoon `Ow kung', that is back of the river. As the name implies, the Hougang Planning Area is located upstream or at the back of the Sungei Serangoon. Serangoon Road is divided into two sections; the first extending from Selegie Road to Macpherson Road and the second from Macpherson Road northwards. This latter part is called Upper Serangoon Road, which forms the main transportation spine serving the Hougang Area.
