As it stands, the remaining building is unused and looks a bit shattered inside. However as a whole, the building is still intact and could meet future’s reparation and use. The paint is broken and dry, but the stamp of KAI company is still attached to the wall.

Sampai saat ini gedung peninggalan stasiun tidak pernah digunakan, dan seperti rusak atau tidak terawat di bagian dalamnya. Namun secara keseluruhan bangunan masih berdiri dengan baik dan mungkin dapat diperbaiki dan digunakan ke depanny.Catnya sudah kering sekali dan mengelupas, tapi logo PT KAI masih tercetak dengan baik di dindingnya

This station is exactly located very near to the railway crossing of Jl. Stasiun Street, around 2 km from Kampung Lalang, the border of Medan City and Deli Serdang District. There are some street food stalls selling snacks and drinks near di station, just by the railway.

Stasiun ini persis di dekat perlintasan sebidang Jl. Stasiun Kelambir Lima, kira2 2 km dari Simpang Kampung Lalang , perbatasan Medan dan Kabupaten Deli Serdang. Ada beberapa warung gorengan dan minuman ringan dekat stasiun, tepat di pinggir rel KA. Tidak jauh dari stasiun juga ada jembatan rel KA yang membentang di atas Sungai Belawan.

As you can see, the regular train KA Sri Lelawangsa Medan – Binjai was about to come and pass the railway station

Stasiun Road (towards North). Railway crossing is on the ascendant part. The station is located on the right side.

There is also nearby railway bridge that goes across Belawan River, which is the natural border between Medan City and Deli Serdang District.

Di dekatnya ada juga jembatan rel KA yang melintasi Sungai Belawan, yang mana merupakan batas alami antara Kota Medan dan Kabupaten Deli Serdang.

Railway bridge crossing Belawan River.

No news whether the station is going to be re-activated again in the future, however the land and the remainings are still exclusively under the ownership of PT. KAI Divre I (National Indonesian Railway Company).
Maybe it could be good as railway station to serve passengers from/to around Klambir Lima / Pinang Baris Kampung Lalang Bus Station / Sunggal.

Tidak ada berita apakah stasiun ini suatu saat akan digunakan kembali, tetapi tanah dan sisa bangunan masih di bawah kepemilikan PT. KAI Divre I Aceh & Sumatra Utara. Mungkin stasiun ini bisa difungsikan untuk melayani penumpang KA dari/ke daerah Kelambir Lima, Pinang Baris Kampung Lalang, Sunggal.
