Traffic will also be restricted to the seaward side lane with the use of Give Way signs.
Executive Lead for Safer Communities and Transport, Cllr Robert Excell, said: "The work will involve securing the cliff face with cables and dowels and is necessary to ensure that the cliff is safe and we reduce the possibility of further landslides in the future.
"We appreciate that there will be some disruption to traffic in the area and we thank people in advance for their patience."
The cost of the work is in the region of £24,500.
