Oracle Belgium has moved to Medialaan 50 in Vilvoorde today. So this morning a new route to work… or not? Two years ago I changed job from BMC Software to Oracle. And as it happens, BMC Belgium lives in Medialaan 50.
The roadworks along the Brussels canal/port that started over two years ago aren’t finished yet, it’s actually worse. And the traffic lights at Van Praet let three to four cars through in one go. So my old trip to the office via the Brussels tunnels isn’t what it used to be.
So let’s see what Google Maps says: 26.1 km – about 22 mins.
Google maps with manual adjustment: 20.6 km – about 21 mins.
Hmmm… since when am I smarter than Google maps? Anyway, I’ll probably be doing this: 18.8 km – about 30 mins. Because 30mins is realistic and 21-22mins is extremely optimistic
