A Porsche which had been preventing Transport for Norwich and Norwich City Council from completing the painting of double yellow lines on Finkelgate in Norwich has been removed and the new road markings completed.
The vehicle, belonging to Jill Stanforth, 33, which had previously been parked on Finkelgate, is believed to have been removed some time between Saturday evening and Sunday morning - with the council coming to finish the work on Sunday.
It follows a stand-off last weel between Ms Stanforth and her partner Gareth Desouky, 41, and Transport for Norwich - in which the couple refused to move their Porsche Cayenne last week because they said they had not been notified of the parking change.
The changes are part of the roadworks which have been in place in Norwich recently.
Last week they received four parking tickets for refusing to move the Porsche.

The couple have appealed against the tickets.
In a statement supplied last week Transport for Norwich said: 'We feel that fair warning of the changes was given and that the meaning of the new road markings is clear so enforcement action has been taken as a last resort.'
