Gubeng, Angkut Hasil Bumi Hingga Serdadu Belanda, Inilah Stasiun Kebanggaan Arek Suroboyo!

first_imgSumber: istimewa “Naik kereta api, tut tut tuuut.. Siapa hendak turut? Ke Bandung, Surabaya.. Bolehlah naik dengan percuma?”Ya, penggalan lirik dari lagu ciptaan Ibu Soed berjudul Kereta Apiku (Naik Kereta Api) ini seolah sudah jadi lagu wajib setiap anak-anak di Indonesia. Terkait dengan lirik lagu tersebut, jika Bandung terkenal dengan Stasiun Bandungnya, maka Surabaya memiliki Stasiun Surabaya Gubeng. Kendati ada Stasiun Turi yang juga terkenal, namun stasiun yang terletak di Jalan Gubeng Masjid, Kelurahan Gubeng, Kecamatan Gubeng, Kota Surabaya ini memiliki sejarah yang menarik untuk dibahas.Baca Juga: Stasiun Bandung, Gerbang Masuk Pelancong Yang Jadi Saksi Bisu Suburnya Tanah Priangan Berada di bawah naungan PT KAI Daerah Operasi (Daop) 8, Stasiun Gubeng melayani keberangkatan kereta api dari Surabaya via jalur selatan menuju ke Bandung maupun Jakarta. Kala diresmikan pada 16 Mei 1878, Stasiun Gubeng merupakan salah satu stasiun kereta api milik Staatsspoorwegen (perusahaan kereta api Hindia Belanda) yang menjadi bagian dari proyek pembangunan jalur kereta api Soerabaja–Pasoeroean.Sebagaimana yang dikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari laman kereta-api.info, sama halnya seperti Stasiun Bandung, pada masa awal berdirinya, Stasiun Gubeng ditujukan untuk mengangkut hasil bumi dan perkebunan dari daerah pelosok Jawa Timur, khususnya dari Malang, ke Pelabuhan Tanjung Perak yang juga mulai dibangun sekitar tahun itu. Beberapa tahun berselang, stasiun yang mulai dibangun pada 1870-an ini pun sempat beralih fungsi menjadi hub para serdadu Belanda yang akan dikirim ke berbagai daerah yang mengalami gejolak perlawanan dari kaum pribumi khususnya di sekitar Surabaya dan Pulau Jawa.Stasiun Gubeng Lama.

Renovasi pertama terjadi pada tahun 1905 dimana atap peron menjadi fokus pembenahan ini. Kemudian pada tahun 1928, atap bangunan utama pun tak luput dari sasaran perbaikan. Dan renovasi paling besar terjadi pada tahun 1990-an, dimana sebuah bangunan baru berarsitektur modern didirikan di sebelah timur rel, dengan tujuan agar stasiun kebanggaan Arek Suroboyo ini dapat menampun jumlah penumpang yang lebih banyak.Stasiun Gubeng Baru. Sumber: Heritage – Kereta Api IndonesiaMengingat Stasiun Gubeng Lama didirikan ketika masa kolonial Belanda, maka tidak heran jika stasiun ini memiliki gaya bangunan kebelanda-belandaan atau Indische. Gaya ini ditandai dengan bangunan tembok tinggi kokoh yang pada pinggiran atapnya biasa diberi ornamen besi tempa, serta menggunakan jendela yang besar-besar dan memakai jalusi besi.Baca Juga: Jejak Sejarah Yang Terlupakan, Stasiun Gambir Dulunya Adalah Tanah RawaKarakter arsitektur bangunan pintu utama Stasiun Gubeng Lama tampak begitu kokoh namun terkesan terbuka karena di sampingnya berjejer jendela-jendela lengkung yang berderet di sepanjang teras. Karena bentuknya yang unik nan artistik, tidaklah mengejutkan jika bangunan utama Stasiun Gubeng Lama menjadi salah satu bagian dari daftar Cagar Budaya yang ada di Kota Pahlawan ini.Hingga kini, stasiun yang memiliki enam jalur utama dengan tujuh peron ini masih berdiri kokoh dan melayani puluhan keberangkatan dan kedatangan kereta api dari berbagai wilayah di Pulau Jawa.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Relatedlast_img read more

Dr Mansingh: It was a matter of sacrificing this season or 2020-21

first_imgSports physician Dr Akshai Mansingh says that the Jamaica Football Federation’s (JFF) decision to end the 2019-20 football season, including the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL), may have come down to a question of ensuring a prompt start to the next campaign or being willing to push back the schedule to complete the 2019-20 season. Last Friday, JFF President Michael Ricketts declared the football season null and void at all levels. No champions will therefore be named for the various competitions, as well as no promotion or relegation. The reaction has been mixed with RSPL clubs Mount Pleasant and Harbour View voicing their disappointment, while the managements of Waterhouse, Dunbeholden and Arnett Gardens have supported the move. When asked if the federation made the right decision, Mansingh said that it was difficult to determine but believes that the JFF would have had to take major factors into consideration, including the remaining RSPL schedule, players’ readiness and the state of lower league competitions that would have had promotion and relegation. He believes that these factors would have left the federation with a choice of trying to start the following season on time or be willing to delay to complete the season. “First and foremost, in my view, would be the remaining schedule and how it would infringe upon the start of a new season because football usually starts in September. So what you don’t want is to run one season into the other,” Mansingh who is also dean of the Faculty of Sport, University of the West Indies, Mona told The Gleaner. “And I think the decision that had to be made is – do you sacrifice the ending of this season to try and save the start of next season? Or do you delay everything down the line?” Other countries have taken the stance to end their seasons, while other top European clubs are deciding on a pathway towards resumption. Jamaica joins Scotland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Argentina as some of the countries that ended their seasons. While Scotland, Belgium and Argentina declared champions based on their current rankings, Jamaica, like the Netherlands, will have no champions and have suspended promotion and relegation. Mansingh said that the players’ well-being would also have been a factor in the decision-making, as it would be difficult for local top-flight players to be brought in from different communities, thus increasing the risk of infection. “Unlike developed countries where club footballers can be kept in isolation for a week, you are looking at a scenario in Jamaica where players come from the communities and they are still under some amount of social distancing,” he said. “The reality is that if you bring footballers in Jamaica together to play a competition, you are potentially increasing the risk of exposure of these players, even without spectators, because they are coming from different communities.” Germany’s domestic leagues (Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2) made their return this past weekend under strict health protocols, which include isolation of players and staff, testing before matches and games played in empty stadiums.last_img read more
