Previous bodged repair has made the road condition worse

There has been a long running pot hole problem which starts at the crossroads in Newton Longville. It extends about 15 metres up Whaddon Road but the worst damage is from there down Bletchley Road to Home Farm. A repair was supposedly done 3-4 weeks ago but the material put into the holes has broken up and is now just grit alongside the kerb. The deepest pot hole is probably at least 4-5cm. Vehicles coming from the crossroads down Bletchley Road tend to drive in the middle of the road to avoid the most extensive holes but it is a blind bend and there is a serious risk of an accident (this morning I saw an HGV pull into the middle of the road. Fortunately the Range Rover coming the other way was only driving slowly and was able to stop until he had passed). We really do need to get this properly sorted please.
