The line will reopen three months ahead of schedule on 5 September following a nine month project to repair extensive damage to the sea wall.

The £3.98M project includes a 235m long viaduct supported by more than 130 concrete columns.

While the railway has been closed between Dover and Folkestone, Network Rail has invested an additional £3.5M to make the line more resilient.

The work has included brickwork repairs on Shakespeare, Abbotscliffe and Martello tunnels, 2.4km of new track, and drainage work in Abbotscliffe tunnel.
