    I need to get from BR1 to KT16 by 8:30 tomorrow morning :o

    As far as i can see I have 3 choices....

    M25
    A232/A244
    A205/A3

    Has anyone driven any of these during rush hour? Ive driven them all but never that early :(

    Fastest route would be the M25, you really don't want to head anywhere near Croydon, Kingston, Surbiton, Streatham, etc... which are some of the possible areas you will go pass if you avoid the M25 :( They are heavily congested during rush hour, you will make more progress via the M25.

    M25 isn't too bad in the mornings either.

    M25 definately, you wont have any issues clockwise around there i wouldnt have thought, the southside of the M25 isnt bad at all :)

    I would take A222->A20->M25

    Wouldn't like to go the direct route during most daylight hours. Probably wont cost you anything extra in terms of time and money :)
