This traffic middelmannetjie runs between the Common and Red Cross Hospital. It seems marginal but is rather wide at certain points, with a stand of alien trees and plants on the other side of the road. The ground is uneven and it is dominated by moles that spill the soil over the edge. Mole predators are perhaps unable to reach across the road to this point. Part of this middelmannetjie has recently been filled in with stones and concrete which is not at all ideal for the soil ph and completely impermeable to water that replenishes the water table.
