Spending a year in JHB and was hoping to get some traffic advice. Will be staying in Blairgowrie and need to travel to Ameshof Str in Braampark (quite close to Wits). I plan to leave the residence at about 7 in the morning and would like to know which of the following two routes will be best to avoid the morning rush and congestion (if such a thing is possible)
Route 1 (easiest)
Go straight down Jan Smuts ave which practically runs into Ameshof str.
Route 2 (trickier)
Use Standard drive to get onto 1st Ave and then onto Barry Hertzog Av, then onto Empire linking up with Jan Smuts.
