Kam Sheung Road (Chinese: 錦上路站) is a MTR station located between Pat Heung and Kam Tin in Hong Kong. It is between Tsuen Wan West and Yuen Long stations. Kam Sheung Road was the arena for the West Rail Line's opening ceremony.

The station is to the north of the rail depot of the line, and the control centre for the West Rail Line is also next to the station. However, the station itself is a short distance from the actual rural towns of Kam Tin or Pat Heung. Originally there were various choices as to the station's name, but residents from nearby could not decide upon the name of the settlements that the station would be named after, so the main road nearest to the station was used instead.

From 26 September to 28 November 2004, the West Rail Sightseeing Bus was introduced, attracting thousands of Kowloon Residents and causing long queues for the buses.

Although the station is not expected to have high passenger traffic, the station attracts quite a number of villagers from Kam Tin and Pat Heung since the West Rail Line is their only direct link to the urban areas in Kowloon. If the Northern Link (to Lok Ma Chau Station) is built, Kam Sheung Road will serve as the interchange with the West Rail Line, and the station will be expanded as well.

The station is close to the Shek Kong Airfield.
