    Re: Use of FREE

    Free can mean unecumbered or, alternatively, without charge.

    So the road could be free for two reasons;
    1 there was no charge (toll) to use it or

    2. there was no traffic (quiet without obstacles)

    you should add so 'the destination was' reached early

    Secondly

    Better to say "when I am free from my office "

    'When I am relieved from my/the office would be OK
