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.
