A series of road closures caused build-ups of traffic in Dundee this week.
One-way systems in place on the likes of Clepington Road and Victoria Street have forced commuters into detours and bus services to re-route.
The Stobswell area has been heavily congested most mornings and evenings, with an increase in rush hour traffic on the likes of Forfar Road, Albert Street and Blackscroft.
There were reports of “considerable congestion” in the area on Wednesday due to one of the closures.
