Maesteg (Ewenny Road) railway station is one of two railway stations that serve the town of Maesteg in Wales. It is located adjacent to the Ewenny Road Industrial Estate to the south of Maesteg on the Maesteg Line from Cardiff via Bridgend. The other station, which is the terminus of the Maesteg Line, is named Maesteg.

History

Passenger services were restored to the Maesteg Line in 1992 by British Rail and Mid Glamorgan County Council. The station opened on 26 October 1992, slightly later than planned along with Wildmill. Both stations were brand new additions and did not replace a station previously in existence prior to the 1970 passenger service withdrawal. The platform was lengthened in 2008 to allow four-car trains to operate busier services. This was funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and the European Union.

Services are operated by Arriva Trains Wales as part of the Valley Lines network for local services.
