The original Llanhilleth railway station was opened by the Great Western Railway on 1 October 1901, but it was closed on 30 April 1962 The present station is situated slightly to the East of the old one and reopened on 27 April 2008, nearly three months after services between Cardiff Central and Ebbw Vale Parkway railway station commenced. Plans include hourly services to Newport. The station at Llanhilleth is situated to the rear of properties on Commercial Road, and opposite Railway Street, near the former station location. Access to the station and car park is provided off Commercial Road. The station currently has a single platform to serve both directions. The Ebbw Vale line is due to be upgraded over the next few years, with the branch extended to Ebbw Vale Town, and with an additional station opened at Pye Corner. Along with this, once electrification is completed, sometime between 2014 and 2019, there will be an hourly train from Ebbw Vale to Newport; to accommodate the extra services, a passing loop and second platform will be built at Llanhilleth.
