Tiong Bahru MRT Station (EW17) is an underground station along the East West Line (EWL). It sits within the Tiong Bahru Station planning subzone, adjacent to the Tiong Bahru, Bukit Ho Swee and Henderson Hill subzones, and is physically located underneath Tiong Bahru Road, near the junction with Lower Delta Road.
Tiong Bahru is an amalgam of two words (tiong meaning cemetery in Hokkien, and bahru meaning new in Malay) as opposed to old cemeteries at Chinatown. The graves were cleared to make way for one of the earliest housing estates in Singapore, and public housing has since expanded to much of the surrounding area.
The station currently serves the Tiong Bahru Plaza shopping centre, and large numbers of residential developments (mostly HDB flats) in the area, along with several schools and parks.
