I was wondering what you'll thought about commuting from Bergvliet to Woodstock via (1) atlantic seaboard or (2) main road. Which holds the highest risk? Is there more chance of being knocked over by a taxi on mainroad or a BMW on either of the neks?
It depends on what time you go through.
If you are early, like on the road @ 6:00, you should be fine on either route.
But going home is not so much fun.
The wind and the traffic (incl pedestrians) on Lower Main Road can be hectic, but Constantia Nek isn't much fun either - Nor is the traffic through Town to Camps Bay or the coastal road to Llandudno when the SE is honking.
I caught the train home yesterday, I didn't feel like the traffic in that wind.
