Zhongxiao Road (Chinese: 忠孝東路、忠孝西路, also called 4th Blvd. or Chunghsiao Road) is a major arterial boulevard and part of provincial highway 5 in Taipei, Taiwan, connecting the Zhongzheng district in the west with the Daan, Songshan, Xinyi, and Nangang districts towards the east. Zhongxiao is known as a popular retail and entertainment area, with many large department stores and shopping malls located along most of the entire stretch.

The majority of the road is 8-10 lanes wide with a median dividing the road. At the intersection with Zhongshan Road, there is a two-lane underpass for traffic on Zhongxiao Road to bypass the intersection. Notable landmarks along Zhongxiao Road includes:
