Drivers have been warned that they could find themselves caught up in delays tonight because of work in Norwich city centre.
Due to surfacing work in the Golden Ball Street/Ber Street area of the city, traffic lights will be in place during the evening peak today and tomorrow.
Council bosses are asking drivers to plan ahead and allow extra time for their journeys where possible.
The signals will be manned throughout the busiest time of the day to help keep traffic flowing as efficiently as possible.
A spokeswoman for Transport for Norwich, said: 'We would like to thank drivers for their patience and apologise for any inconvenience caused while this work takes place.'

The closures are needed so a new raised table and signal controlled pedestrian crossing can be built on Ber Street, near the Golden Ball Street junction.
It will also see a new turning area created in All Saints Green, by its junction with Westlegate. All Saints Street is being pedestrianised as part of the scheme.
During the closures, the alternative route for southbound traffic (heading towards Ber Street) will be via Rouen Road, King Street, Bracondale and Ber Street.
The alternative route for northbound traffic (heading towards Cattle Market Street) will be via Ber Street, Bracondale, King Street, Koblenz Avenue, Riverside, Prince of Wales Road, Rose Lane and Cattle Market Street.
Timber Hill will also be temporarily shut, except for access, on two nights during the closures.
