Sir Donald Bradman Drive is a major arterial road that travels east–west through the western suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.[2] It is the main route from the Adelaide city centre to the Adelaide Airport.

Formerly known as Burbridge Road, the section between the city centre and Tapleys Hill Road was renamed as Sir Donald Bradman Drive on 1 January 2001[1] in honour of Australian cricketer Sir Donald Bradman. The remaining section of Burbridge Road, west of Tapleys Hill Road to the coast, retains its original name,

The road starts at West Terrace, goes through the Adelaide Park Lands, over the Adelaide-Melbourne railway line and crosses South Road and Marion Road before passing the Airport and reaching Tapleys Hill Road.[2]
