Midrand is essentially a collection of suburbs in Johannesburg. It was an actual municipality until 1998 when its status changed and it technically ceased to exist. Today, the name still applies to suburbs found north of the Juskei River huddling along the N1 highway. The most notable communities in this area include Halfway Gardens, Glen Austin, Crowthorne and Halfway House.
In Midrand, the N1 motorway is referred to as the Ben Shoeman Highway', a title it retains as it travels past Centurion to the north. There are several avenues leading south into Johannesburg including the N1 (which skirts the city to the west); the M1 (which travels into the heart of the city); and the N3 (the Eastern Bypass Road).
