Hastings’ West Hill Lift is likely to remain closed for a further two to three months, according to a Hastings Borough Council spokesman.
The cliff railway is currently closed due to a mechanical fault, the council spokesman said.
However, while repairs are already underway, some of the equipment needs to be sent away to specialist contractors.
The work is likely to take two to three months to complete, and during this time the lift will remain closed to the public.
The council spokesperson said: “We are very sorry for any inconvenience caused and will complete the works earlier if we possibly can.”
