This is a modern two platform station to the east of the village of Blackridge. It has a car park on its north side.
The station was opened in 2010 with the re-opened Airdrie - Bathgate line. It was built to the immediate west of the former Woodend Junction yard, a set of exchange sidings on either side of the line serving collieries to north and south the last of which was the Woodend Colliery.
To the west was Westcraigs station, which this new station effectively replaces.
