    Default Commute - is it worth it

    Hey all,

    Recently moved to Auckland from the UK. Working in Papatoetoe and wanted some knowledge if this scenario is worth it. Have been offered to house sit for 7 weeks in west harbour, which in theory sounds amazing and will save me some dollar BUT concerned that it will take me hours to commute up SH1 during rush hours, I tend to leave between 4-7pm.

    Any alternative routes or am just clutching at straws??

    Thanks in advance

    The traffic on SH1 (North & South bound) tends to pick up roughly from 3:30pm onwards which I think is due to the school zones along Remuera, Mt Eden, Newmarket exits. Anything after 4:15pm will be long long drive to West Harbour, mostly along SH1. The traffic on SH16 starts building up after 4:30pm, also note that there's road extension construction underway on SH16 which could add to delays and traffic.
