Works which were due to start on a busy Norwich road next week have been postponed by Norfolk County Council.
They were due to start on Monday, July 19, last 10 weeks and cost £260,000.
The existing traffic lights where the ring road meets Aylsham Road, Cromer Road and Reepham Road were set to be replaced.
Ahead of increased traffic on the roads because of 'freedom day,' the news will come as welcome relief for drivers in the city.
The works have been postponed following concerns about access raised by the local county councillor and local community.
