Navigation Road station serves the eastern side of Altrincham, Broadheath and Timperley areas of Altrincham in Greater Manchester, England. The station also serves as a Manchester Metrolink station. Trains run down only one of the two tracks and trams down the other.
There is a level crossing at the Altrincham end of the station.
The station originally opened on 20 July 1931 on the Manchester, South Junction and Altrincham Railway (MSJAR) following the electrification of that line, and was referred to as Navigation Road (Altrincham) on early tickets, timetables, etc. British Rail electric trains between Manchester and Altrincham ceased serving the station on 24 December 1991. The former Altrincham-bound (down) platform has since been used for Mid-Cheshire Line trains and the former Manchester-bound (up) platform reopened as a Metrolink stop on 15 June 1992.
Navigation Road is served by an hourly train service between Manchester Piccadilly and Chester via Stockport and Northwich, which is run by Northern Rail. The Sunday service originally ran only between Chester and Altrincham thus not serving Navigation Road, with passengers connecting onto the Metrolink at Altrincham to go to stations to Manchester, however a full Sunday service to Manchester is now in place.
