Rush hour traffic Vevey area

Hi, I am interested to know how the traffic is on the A9 motorway(or by the lake from Lutry side to Vevey) during working days - peak times - to be able to decide whether to buy/rent in area called Le Signal (located above highway near Lutry/Aran)or not. We are considering a school in Vevey and to be in time for shool what time would I need to leave Le Signal in the morning? Anybody else commuting during similar times to Vevey (from Lausanne side), appreciate if you let me know your experience..
Thank you.

It's pretty to very heavy.

I used to do the commuting, and usually traffic gets completely blocked from Vennes exit onward.

The A9 is pretty bad at rush hour, and I really don't miss the commuting I would regularly take 45min to do the 20km between EPFL and Belmont exit.

If he joins highway on Lutry entry (convenient for Le Signal) going towards Vevey, Vennes hardly comes into it !

You're going against the traffic as it were, all heading towards Lausanne so shouldn't be too bad, maybe 20 minutes max from Lutry to Vevey and the same back in the evening.
