Verges damaged by parking in Downsview Crescent, Uckfield, have been filled with soil.
The aim is to reinstate the grass verges between the footpath and the road.
However, within days of the soil going down, vehicle tracks can be seen on the newly filled verges.
The unsightly verges have concerned residents, councillors and others for many years.
At one stage, installing bollards to deter parking was considered but the idea was dropped.
It is understood the bollards were considered to be a potential hazard.
This website reported in October last year on a meeting of an Uckfield Town Council committee which received a report, stating:
“Concern has been expressed regarding vehicles parking on grass verges in Downsview Crescent.
“The problem is caused by vehicles dropping off/picking up children from the nearby schools and nursery.
“Vehicles are also blocking driveways and in one instance a vehicle was parked in a resident’s drive.
“Tarmac to replace the grass verges has been dismissed and ESCC (East Sussex County Council) are looking to reinstate the grass verges and install posts.”
*Separately, East Sussex Highways is monitoring Downsview Crescent, Southview Drive and surrounding roads during the new build for Uckfield College.
