Tawang Station is the biggest train station in Semarang, the capital city of Central Java, Indonesia. The station is the oldest major railway station in Indonesia after Semarang Gudang Station and opened on July 19, 1868 for track Semarang Tawang to Tanggung. Economic class trains do not stop at this station, but stop at Semarang Poncol Station.
Because of the rapid development of the Semarang City and the improper city planning for the Semarang City as a coastal city, then Semarang Tawang station frequently floods when hard rain comes or the sea level rises. Besides heavy rainfall and high tide in the Java Sea, the flood is brought about by the loss of catchment areas in the north of the station. Flood is the main problem that Tawang station has to cope with, not to mention a heap of waste in the eastern part of the station. These problems make the operation of the railway on the north route run unwell.
