Highway improvement work to the A10/A142 BP roundabout has finished ahead of schedule.
The £1.8m contract completed at the weekend, originally anticipated to be the end of November.
The work, which started in July, has seen all approaches to the BP roundabout widened with now at least two-lane entries.
The eastbound arm of the roundabout has three lanes and a dedicated left turn lane onto the A10 north.
Finally, the exit of the A10 services has been restricted to left turn only and any vehicles wishing to head west will now be required to go round the roundabout.

The work followed a feasibility study which showed the main cause of the existing local congestion was caused by the BP roundabout.
Cllr Ian Bates, chairman of the highways and transport committee at Cambridgeshire County Council, said: “The scheme will ease congestion and improve capacity at the junction.”
