Protesters blocked the Soweto highway through the Mzimhlope area with burning tyres and rocks on Tuesday morning.

Johannesburg metro police department spokesperson chief superintendent Wayne Minnaar said Carr Street had also been blocked off.

"They are complaining about houses in the area," Minnaar said.

Motorists are advised to use alternative routes.
