Problem traffic lights that have been causing long tailbacks in Great Yarmouth are working again in time for tonight's rush hour.
But engineers will be back in Southtown Road tomorrow to find a permanent solution at the junction with Station Road.
The lights failed on Tuesday evening leading to long queues along the busy road - one of the main routes into town.
A spokesman for Norfolk County Council speculated the malfunction could have been caused by a collision last week when one of the poles was damaged.
Engineers on site today have fixed the lights but there is still a problem with the pole.

They will return after the morning rush hour tomorrow to finish the job which may involve switching the lights off again.
