Stellenbosch - CT

Post by justin »

Hoping someone can help me out.
Question 1: If a person wanted to get from Stellenbsoch to CT (City Centre) by 07:30 in the morning, what time would you leave Stellenbosch?

Question 2: To miss out on traffic completely, what time would you leave Stellenbosch?

Thanks

Probably leaved 06:00 to be safe. I used to go in from tygerberg side every day to town...If anything goes wrong on the road you're screwed.
To miss traffic completely...just stay in Stellenbosch :lol:

FYI, Google Maps arrive by feature is your friend...

But from personal experience, to arrive at 0730, leave by 0530-0600
There's no traffic if you're on the road by 4.30-4.45. It then takes about 45 min.
Happy climbing

Thanks guys! Big city life over here... having to re-learn a few things since getting back 8)

Googles Arrive by Feature doesn't appear to take into account (accurately anyway) the congestion of traffic that one would encounter !?

I think it does, but go with the worst case prediction, not the best.
Happy climbing
