Cemmes Road railway station was a railway station on the Newtown and Machynlleth Railway (N&MR) in Mid-Wales, serving the village of Cemmaes Road.

The N&MR, after crossing the River Severn and crossing through the Cambrian Mountains through the Talerddig cutting, junctioned with the Mawddwy Railway at the village of Cemmaes Road. It then proceeded to Machynlleth.

Due to the nearby location of the similarly named Cemmaes railway station on the Mawddwy Railway, it was chosen by the N&MR's English backers to name the junction station using an Anglicanised-version of the village's Welsh language name.

Cemmes Road shut under the Beeching Axe in 1965, although the station itself still exists today as a private house.
