The listed travel times are accurate for motorists who use Google Maps to navigate the most efficient route / around accidents.

Motorists who do not use Google Maps (self navigate) OR who got caught up in a new accident (with no opportunity to divert) may experience longer travel times.

Therefore we recommend you use an internet-connected GPS app so you are routed via the most efficient path and should an accident occur, you are automatically re-routed via a faster road.
