Victoria Road is a major road in Sydney, Australia.

Victoria Road connects Parramatta with the western end of Anzac Bridge. Victoria Road passes through the Sydney suburbs of Rydalmere, Ermington, West Ryde, Ryde, Gladesville, Drummoyne and Rozelle, and is currently one of the longest roads in Sydney. The road passes over two major bridges: the Iron Cove Bridge over Iron Cove, and the Gladesville Bridge over the Parramatta River.

The road has been notoriously dubbed as one of the most congested road in Sydney with an average travel speed of 24 km/h during the morning peak period and 31 km/h in the afternoon peak.[1]

Victoria Road is predominantly 3 lanes in each direction between Rozelle and Gladesville, and 2 or 3 lanes in each direction west of Gladesville. A large number of bus routes travel along Victoria Road, and during peak hours much of the road includes a dedicated bus lane. In 2011, the Inner West Busway project introduced a tidal flow arrangement between Drummoyne and Rozelle which provides 4 city bound lanes (including 1 dedicated bus lane) and 2 west bound lanes in the morning peak, before reverting to 3 lanes in each direction at 10am.[2]
