Yuen Long Highway (Chinese: 元朗公路; pinyin: Yuánlǎng Gōnglù; Cantonese Yale: yun4 long5 gung1 lou6) is a Hong Kong road connecting Au Tau in Yuen Long and Lam Tei in Tuen Mun of New Territories. It is part of Route 9. It was completed in July 1993 and provides a continuation of route 9 from Tuen Mun to Yuen Long leading to the Shap Pat Heung Interchange and Pok Oi Interchange. Construction of the latter two interchanges were started in 1992 and completed in 1994.

In order to accommodate the expected traffic from Route 10 cross-border corridor to and from Shekou/Dongjiaotou in Shenzhen over Deep Bay, the road had been finished upgrading to a dual 3-lane carriageway from its original dual 2-lane carriageway in February 2006.
