Metrorail suspended services in parts of Soweto indefinitely.
The Soweto Highway has also been affected.
The reason for the suspension in the area is the protest in Mzimhlophe on Monday morning, in which residents burnt tyres to protest against evictions, EWN reports.
Alternative transport arrangements are suggested.
Police are monitoring the protest.
Metrorail’s Lillian Mofokeng said; “The situation will be closely monitored and we will resume our services when it’s safe.”
