Roughton Road is a modern railway halt on the outskirts of the town of Cromer in the English county of Norfolk. It is several miles north of the village of Roughton. The station is served by local services operated by Greater Anglia on the Bittern Line from Norwich to Cromer and Sheringham.

Opened in the mid-1980s Roughton Road station is unstaffed and consists of a single platform.

The station is approximately half a mile from the site of the now closed Cromer High railway station, the former terminus of the Great Eastern Railway, and is situated on the site of the former junction between the Great Eastern Railway and the Norfolk and Suffolk Joint Railway, at the entrance to the disused Cromer Tunnel.
