Across the road pothole and around manhole cover

Reported in the Pothole category anonymously at 06:50, Thursday 12 July 2018

A4260 from Kindlington to Banbury Northbound, adjacent to Shipton on Cherwell junction. Previous pothole around manhole cover has been recently repaired (thank you) and I hoped this one would be too, but it appears not. I cycle to/from Oxford Airport each day for work. The perpendicular pothole to travel is creeping towards the gutter, and is soon going to cut off my narrow means of escaping this pothole on the bike (green arrow). When it does so, I will have no option but to take a wider line in my lane and pass the pot hole on the right hand side (red arrow) no doubt becoming a pain for motorists even though I can be going 25 mph here. Hazard to me and hazard to them. The pothole around the manhole is also growing too.
