Jarrow Interchange is a grade-separated junction on the A19 in Jarrow, South Tyneside, and the southern portal to the Tyne Tunnel. It is a complex junction, somewhere between a trumpet and a dumbbell. It was designed as such due to space constraints, having to fit between the entrances to the tunnels to the north, housing to the north and west and railway lines to the south.

The junction was comprehensively redesigned as part of the works to build a second Tyne Tunnel. Prior to this, the A19 and A185 met a large at-grade roundabout, and the latter road had a separate roundabout with the B1297. A new ramp was built enabling access to and from the northbound carriageway, while the bridge carrying the A185 over the A19 was demolished and replaced with a new bridge immediately to the north. The remodelled junction was opened in 2011, the same year as the second tunnel.
