Torbay Road also known as Newfoundland and Labrador Route 20, is a road that leads from St. John's to the town of Torbay. Torbay Road begins in the east end of St. John's, where Kenna's Hill forks into two branches: Torbay Road and Logy Bay Road.

Within the city of St. John's, Torbay Road is both a major arterial road and a significant commercial area, with many strip malls as well as the Torbay Road Mall and, north of the Trans-Canada Highway, the Stavanger Drive big-box retail area. The road is heavily travelled in the mornings and evenings as workers commute into and out of the city. Due to the congestion on the road through the town of Torbay, a bypass road was built. Completed in late 2011,[1] the two-lane bypass runs from Torbay, with access to the major intersecting roads of Indian Meal Line and Bauline Line, and terminating at Flatrock.

Route 20 officially terminates at the Cape St. Francis lighthouse.
