The South Coastal Cross (Pansela) Java route can be an alternative route for Eid homecoming travelers in 2022 other than the North Coast Cross (Pantura) and the Central Java Cross. Minister of Public Works and Public Housing (PUPR) Basuki Hadimuljono said this route has many interesting spots.
Minister Basuki said President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) ordered that preparations for the 2022 Eid homecoming be better than in previous years, given the very high enthusiasm of travelers after being unable to go home for two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“One of the preparations is that this Pansela Cross can be an alternative for travelers, so that the traffic load is divided and does not pile up on the Pantura Cross and Central Java Cross,” said Minister Basuki in a statement quoted on Monday (11/4/2022).
Minister Basuki stated that the Pansela Cross that was built had already penetrated from Bayah, Lebak Regency, Banten Province through Kebumen, Cilacap, Wonosari to Pacitan, East Java Province. In total, 1,242 km have been connected.

“The Pansela Road was built with funding from the APBN, Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Islamic Development Bank (IDB) starting 6 years ago, we will build it in stages. Later in 2024 we will continue until it is connected to Banyuwangi, East Java,” said Minister Basuki.
With the existence of three homecoming routes on the island of Java, Minister Basuki hopes that the burden will be divided during the homecoming period. “For that I invite the public to take advantage of Jalan Pansela, a road with beautiful views that passes through many beach tourist locations. The scenery is beautiful and instagrammable, for those who pass this route, hopefully the Eid holiday will be memorable with family,” he said.
