MORE work is needed to clear the landslip at Teignmouth which has brought chaos to west Country rail services.
Network Rail has only removed just over half of the 1,500 tonnes of liquefied mud and spoil that slid down the cliff face between Sprey Point and Parsons Tunnel.
A spokesman said the company will try to remove the rest during midweek and weekend possessions of the lines to minimise disruption to rail services.
He added: "Further work will be required to remove all the remaining spoil and undertake the permanent works."
The massive clean up has already cost more than £500,000 and the bill is still rising.
There is still a 50mph speed restriction on the southbound Down Line and a 20mph speed limit on the Up Line while the work is ongoing.
Network Rail has also put a watchman on the slip site round the clock to ensure passenger and train safety.
As yet, there is no date set for the completion of the works. It is hoped to reinstate full line speed as soon as possible.
