Rondebosch Common Traffic Circle - Site #65


This traffic circle was originally planted with indigenous vegetation from the Rondebosch Common (which is right next to the traffic circle). However, due to an unfortunate incident all this vegetation was accidentally removed from the traffic circle in February 2018. Some of the offcuts have been salvaged and we are working hard to grow them back and restore them!
