… trying to get from Upper Woodstock to Parklands in good time before the afternoon peak?
Well, if the N1 outbound is closed due to a freak truck accident, very hard. Instead of cruising up the R27, which should have taken me around 30 minutes, I ended up having to take a rather convoluted route home to avoid the resulting city-wide traffic jam. Made it home in 90 minutes though.
Of course, it happens on a day that I didn’t ride the bus in to work. Just lovely.
