Noticed the traffic getting worse? The city has entered the annual period known as ‘March madness’ when schools, universities and workers are all back on deck and traffic on the region’s motorways hits its peak for the year. The rush actually begins in the second week of February. In the morning peak period from 6.30am till 9.30am, traffic on the network drove at an average speed of 65kmh last February and March – the slowest for the whole year. Officials are waiting for 2015 results.
