The start of the school term is causing delays for drivers in and around Norwich.
With the school runs resuming for parents across the city, the roads are expected to be much busier than normal.
Some traffic built around the Thickthorn Roundabout, on both the A47 slip roads and the A11.
Newmarket Road and Ipswich Road both had heavy traffic into Norwich, as do Dereham Road and Drayton High Road.
The A140 ring road also had heavy traffic, with traffic heaviest on Sweet Briar Road south, and on Mousehold Lane.
The A147 road around Norwich was busy, with traffic heaviest on Chapelfield Road.
There was slow-moving traffic on a four-mile stretch of the A47, from Low Road in Hockering to near Easton.
