The Sarkhej–Gandhinagar Highway, colloquially the S.G. Road, connects the city of Ahmedabad with Gandhinagar, the capital of the state of Gujarat, India. It forms the major part of NH 8C that connects Sarkhej with Chiloda near Gandhinagar. It is a major artery of commerce and public transport, and is witnessing a major construction boom along its route to Gandhinagar. It has emerged as a hub for entertainment and coroporations. Many malls have been built with anchor stores like Lifestyle, Globus, Croma and Westside. International car and motorcycle showrooms including Porsche, BMW, Audi, Triumph, DC,Vikas Motorland, Jaguar, Land Rover, Range Rover, Nissan, Toyota, Rolls-Royce, Harley-Davidson, Honda, Skoda and Mercedes are located on this road. Iscon Mega Mall, Gujarat's largest mall, is on this road.

The highway was primarily built as a mean of bypassing the city of Ahmedabad. But the cheap land prices lead to a boom of the retail industry. Presently, the prices of land in this area are more comparable to those in the proper city area.

Gujarat's tallest commercial hub Shapath V (70 m height) is located on S.G. Road.
