Victoria Interchange is a grade separated dumbbell junction on the A30, linking the new Dual Carriageway to the old route of the A30, east of the village of Victoria, Cornwall.

The junction was built between 2004 and 2007 when the A30 across Goss Moor was bypassed, removing the then heavily congested single carriageway from the Goss Moor SSSI. Originally a simple Dumbbell Junction, a new entrance onto the southern roundabout was added when Cornwall Services opened in 2014. When opened, the B3274 was extended to meet the new junction from Victoria. The old road was realigned so that the road from the west met the new junction from the south and the eastern side met it from the north. This made construction of the road underneath a lot easier due to the bridge being able to be built without traffic in the way.

The junction is now more associated with the Services instead of the village that it once served. There are still local services within the village, but not on the same scale as before the road was bypassed, which included two large petrol stations and a capacious Little Chef.

Before the new junction, there was a junction between the A30 and a minor road to the north. This remains intact to the north of the new junction, largely as it was before the new road was built.
