Police were monitoring the situation in Zandspruit where Beyers Naude Drive was partially closed on Thursday morning, Johannesburg metro police said.
“Protesters continue to burn tyres resulting in Beyers Naude Drive being partially closed between Juice and Peter roads,” spokesman Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said.
“There is a heavy police presence and motorists are advised to avoid the area and use Malibongwe Drive and Hendrik Potgieter road as alternatives.”
On Wednesday protesters blocked Beyers Naude Drive with stones and rocks and threw stones at cars.
