We are stuck in a large traffic jam.

Really? About one and half hours remains. Are you sure that we are on time?

自然な表現

Really? About one and a half hour remains. Are you sure that we are on time?

1. Add this article here as you are referring to a singular noun.
Wow, am not sure, what's causing this traffic jam. There might be an accident ahead of our way. I'll try to find another way if the traffic remains to be non moving. Is it alright with you, Sir?

I'm not sure we find another way to go to the airport. Will you check the car navigation system whether there is another way? If you find a way, then we will change the route. The car navigation system will show you how much long it will take. Please tell me the time.

I'm not sure we will find another way to go to the airport. Will you check the car navigation system to see whether there is another way? If you find a way, then we will change the route. The car navigation system will show you how _ long it will take. Please tell me the time.

1. Add this auxiliary here as you are talking about the future.
2. Add this preposition + infinitive verb to indicate purpose.
3. No need for a determiner before "long"
The shortest travel time to the airport is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. We will drive a little fast and will take an inner road after 700 meters. Is that alright with you?

Just one and a half hours remains by my flight. I believe that the inner road cannot solve this situation and won't be in time to my flight. Getting a train may be better in order to get the airport as soon as possible. Are there any train stations near here?

自然な表現

Just one and a half hours remains until my flight. I believe that the inner road cannot solve this situation and I won't be in time for my flight. Getting a train may be better in order to get to the airport as soon as possible. Are there any train stations near here?

1. Use this preposition when you mean "up to (the point in time or the event mentioned)".
2. Add this pronoun here to indicate the subject of the sentence.
3. Use this preposition when you mean "intended to".
4. Add this preposition after a verb that involves movement.
Yes, there is one just around the corner. Would you like me to take you there? And don't worry, maybe your flight won't be on time, you know that they are often late...

Although the flight may be delayed as is often the case with it, I'm anxious about being late for the flight. In case I miss the flight, I won't be in time for the important meeting with my colleagues. So please get me to the train station?

1. You can use this pronoun here to avoid repetition.
Yes, of course! We will be at the train station in about three minutes. You can check the timetable online and see when the next train to the airport leaves.

I appreciate your kindness. Getting trains is more punctual than driving cars, and I'll be in time for the flight. Traffic jams irritate me and make me uneasy. I should have left earlier, predicting a heavy traffic on the way to the airport. Thank you.
