About 500 protesters were waiting for government officials to address them after they blocked the Golden Highway south of Johannesburg with burning tyres on Monday morning, police said.
Captain Kay Makhubela said police dispersed the crowd from the Oriental Plaza near the Golden Highway at about 7am, but they moved to an open field near Wimbledon Road, where they were waiting for officials to speak to them about service delivery.
"The police are monitoring the situation," said Makhubela.
"No-one was arrested and no-one injured."
No incidents of violence had been reported. The situation was calm just before noon.
