Work to secure the embankment in Newport Road following a landslip last year is expected to be finished by Thursday evening, ready for Easter weekend.
Newport Road in Saffron Walden is currently closed to traffic and Essex Highways engineers have been sharing photos of their progress on Twitter.
The team tweeted: “Chalk bank has been trimmed to a 1:3 slope to make it less likely to slip. The spoil chalk dug out is being removed from site.”
The road is expected to reopen on Friday (April 19), ready for Easter weekend.
