Driving via Gotthard tunnel - never again!

Driving down to Milan on Friday night was absolutely fine, I did it in about 3.5 hours door-to-door. Today I left Milan at about 10am thinking I would beat the Sunday afternoon traffic.. big mistake. It took approx 6 hours to get from Milan to the mouth of the St Gotthard tunnel. Once we were in the tunnel it was plain sailing all the way to Basel. The two bottle necks were the Swiss border (relatively minor) and then Gotthard (major).

I perhaps should have expected it, but everyone knows that end-Bank Holiday traffic usually kicks off late afternoon
