Johannesburg - Protesters from the Vlakfontein informal settlement have set up barricades, forcing the closure of Randfontein Road in Roodepoort, Johannesburg metro police said on Thursday.

Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar said Randfontein Road was closed between Impala Road and Corlett Avenue in the early hours of the morning.

"Protesters have placed burning tyres on the road. But there is a huge police presence in the area," said Minnaar.

Motorists were urged to use alternative routes.
