HistoryEdit

The station is located on the former BOSM line north of Pasar Senen station, at the eastern end of the Weltevreden region. This station is named after the name of the surrounding residential area, established in the early 20th century. The station and track were taken over by Maatschappij tot Exploitatie van Staatsspoorwegen in 1898.[1]

Since being taken over by SS, Kemayoran station was later developed by SS. In 1902, a shortcut path from Kemayoran to Ancol was built, used to accelerate the flow of goods shipments to Tanjung Priok.[2] With the operation of the electric locomotive and electric train (KRL) on the Batavia-Buitenzorg line in 1925, SS then planned the construction of a double track in almost all Jakarta crossings since 1926. As a first step, the first double track on the Batavia line was between Kemayoran – Batavia and Sawah Besar – Weltevreden. In fact, the reshuffle was also carried out on the route to Tanjung Priok after the inauguration of the new station in 1925.[3]
