Description:
Waterloo Street (Chinese: 滑铁卢街) is a two-way street in downtown Singapore stretching from Rochor Road to Bras Basah Road. It passes through the planning areas of Rochor and Museum Planning Area.

The street was constructed in 1837 and was initially named Church Street after Thomas Church who became a resident councillor that same year. A survey of this street was done by J.T. Thomson, and it was very likely that he used Church's name for the street due to the close working relationship between the two of them. The street name was renamed to its present name by the Municipal Council in 1858 to commemorate the Duke of Wellington's victory over the French in 1815, which is the Battle of Waterloo. Formerly a one-way street, the street has been converted to two ways for a couple of years, and the northern end of the street has been converted into a pedestrian mall to ease the problem of traffic jams and the crowd at Kwan Im Thong Hood Co Temple in the past, especially during the weekends and public holidays. The street, which previously extended to Stamford Road, has been shortened after the construction of Singapore Management University's city campus and the MRT station.
