I'm house sitting in Mernda at the moment and I drive south on Epping Road/High Street around 7:00am. No problems getting through that area what so ever - no waits at Eucalupt or Lyndarum lights, no waits at Findon Road roundabout, and generally no waits at McDonalds Road. I say generally as one time at that intersection I didnt get through on the first green, but was first in line for the next green light
I'm not sure what the traffic is like on High Street after McDonalds Road as I go down Davidson Street to get onto Dalton Road, but I wouldnt expect any delays, especially if you go though at 6:30am!
Apologies for thr delay in response Snake nut thanks a ton for the response...
