Taking a longer route which is more than safar distance to work

Q: The shortest distance from Ext 11b, Lenasia to SITA, Centurion is 74 km according to Google Maps, but a different route measures 84 km. This being my daily commute between home and work, am I a musafir while at work every day, or is my being a musafir dependent on which of the 2 routes mentioned, I actually used?

A: It will depend on the route you use.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
