The Western Cape MEC for Transport, Daylin Micthell says several police members, traffic officers and members of the army were deployed this morning to curb further taxi-related violence.
This, after the taxi route between Paarl and Bellville was officially closed today, for a period of two months.
Mitchell says there were no shootings or other taxi-violence reported by 7:30.
Law enforcers are ready to respond if any incidents are reported with members of the military deployed in high-risk areas.
The Golden Arrow bus service has made buses available on the route between the Paarl and Bellville and, according to Mitchell, commuters can also make use of Metrorail train services.
