Roughton Road is a modern railway halt opened by British Rail in 1985, 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 Abellio Greater Anglia on the Bittern Line from Norwich to Cromer and Sheringham. It 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. It was built on the initiative of North Norfolk District Council as a job creation scheme.[citation needed]
