    Just draw a velocity-time diagram for the journey.

    For part a) think about what equations you need for the acceleration & deceleration phases (middle distance is known)

    v = we know
    u = we know
    a = we know
    s = we want
    t = we don't care

    Is there an equation you can form using the things you know & the thing you want (Hint: yes there is)

    Fair enough, it's still a valid approach, however for SUVAT directly you then have to apply v^2=u^2+2as for part A.

    Then have to apply two SUVAT equations for the second part at 3 different times. t_1 when it stops accelerating, t_2 when it begins decelerating, and t when it comes to rest again. Drawing a diagram is useful here though.

    I'm sure you know how to work out the average speed for the last part with the info you got.

    Then for b) repeat as above
    c) use your answers to a & b
