Torrens Road is an arterial road in the northwestern suburbs of Adelaide, Australia.[1] The road travels in a southeast-northwest direction and is parallel with Port Road for most of its length.

It commences at Park Terrace (R1). Travelling northwest, major roads that intersect Torrens Road include Churchill Road (A22), South Road (A13), and Regency Road. It meets the Outer Harbor railway line in Alberton, and ceases a short distance later, a couple of hundred metres south of Grand Junction Road (A16).

The short section between Park Terrace and Churchill Road at the southeastern end of Torrens Road is designated route A22, which then follows Churchill Road.

The former Cheltenham Park Racecourse ( now a residential area ) and Armada Arndale Shopping Centre are both located on Torrens Road.

Torrens Road is located in the Cities of Prospect, Charles Sturt and Port Adelaide Enfield.
