Crosskeys railway station is a station on the Ebbw Valley Railway in Wales.

The station is situated near the former station site closed in 1962, behind houses on Risca Road and Carlton Terrace. The access to the station is via a one-way system off High Street exiting via Carlton Terrace.

Crosskeys is a two-platform station and there is no car park. The station provides good access to the town and the local college as well as being near local bus links.

The station marks the end of the double-track passing loop between Risca and Crosskeys, upon leaving Crosskeys trains enter the single track which extends to the rail head in Ebbw Vale Town.

The station opened on 7 June 2008, four months after services between Cardiff Central and Ebbw Vale Parkway railway station commenced. Plans include an hourly service to Newport.[1]


The normal service on Monday to Saturday is one train per hour in each direction; these terminate at Cardiff Central and Ebbw Vale Town. On Sundays, trains run approximately every two hours.
