Marion Road is a north–south conduit through the western suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia. It forms part of State Route number A14.

Where it terminates in Bedford Park, southwest of Adelaide's centre, Marion Road feeds into the Southern Expressway near the northern starting point of that road.

At its northern end, Marion Road terminates at Henley Beach Road, where heading west on Henley Beach Road, after about 250 metres, Holbrooks Road continues north as the A14, through to Grange Road, where 50 metres to the east, East Avenue takes the A14 route to its terminus at Port Road

There are a couple of rail crossings passing through Marion Road, with the Glenelg Tram Line having a level crossing in Plympton between Anzac Highway and Cross Road, with the three crossings causing major congestion during peak times. In Park Holme, the Noarlunga Line crosses over Marion road with an overpass.

The road name is based on its traversal through the suburb (Marion) and city of Marion.
