The Salisbury Highway (Route A13 / National Highway A13) is a 12 kilometre major connecting road in the northern suburbs of the Adelaide metropolitan area.

The Highway is dual carriageway in its entirety. It starts as Route A13 in Elizabeth as John Rice Avenue. Past the suburb of Salisbury it takes on its Salisbury Highway name. It then runs parallel to Main North Road (Route A52) and crosses over Kings Road (Route A18). At Port Wakefield Road (National Highway A1), it changes status to National Highway A13 before ending at the intersection of the Port River Expressway (Route A9) and South Road. National Highway A13 then follows South road to Grand Junction Road (Route A16 / National Highway A16), where it changes status to back to Route A13 where it continues south along South Road, Main South Road and Victor Harbor Road, terminating at Victor Harbor on the south coast.

Salisbury Highway is shown as part of the National Highway A13 between the Port Wakefield Road and the Port River Expressway on local road signage and major street directory publications.[1]
