Councils have begun clearing trees and debris left following a landslide which blocked a main route through a town for two weeks.
District and county authorities today joined forces to clear Folkestone’s Road of Remembrance, following the potentially dangerous slippage, on January 27.
While an ongoing probe into the cause of the landslide continues, felled trees and debris will be removed, returning road access between the Leas and harbour.
This week, Folkestone & Hythe District Council workers will reduce the height of trees on the steep bank alongside the road and clear litter.
Kent County Council (KCC) will also be working to remove vegetation left behind.
Bosses say carrying out the work now will avoid having to shut the road again in the future.
The incident came to light after KCC received reports of a fallen tree blocking the road.
After a team arrived it was discovered that the fallen trees appeared because of a landslip but removing it needed to be put on hold until an investigation was carried out.
The road, linking the harbour area with The Leas, is still shut to ensure public safety and a diversion is signposted for drivers and those on foot.
As well as assessing the stability of the bank and surrounding area, contact is also being made with the owners of the land which forms part of the bank.
