Travel tips

You will still be able to get to where you need to go, but consider the following:

Use a different route. If you do have to use the car, check your route before you leave. Google Maps or a Sat-Nav with live traffic updates will help you pick the least congested route each time.
Travel off-peak. Roads will be quieter if you are able to travel off-peak. The busiest time to travel during weekdays is usually before 09:30 and after 15:30.
