Chain Hill becoming a real danger

Chain Hill road is periodically fixed for potholes that appear every year and various patching up jobs are done. It is now becoming very dangerous. The same areas are constantly breaking up and the bottom of the road near the junction, is now subsiding and is an undulating mess. People have to swerve to avoid potholes and dips, and many near misses are happening every day because the holes are opposite a line of parked cars. The whole road from the junction to the new development up the hill needs resurfacing. During this quiet time It would be the perfect time to do it, and have a diversion via Letcombe Regis. I am worried there will be more punctures/wheel cracks/near misses and potential accidents soon, as areas that have recently been filled are now dips with jagged edges. We have lived off Chain Hill for 3 years and the road is getting progressively worse each year. It is filled over and over again and it never solves the problem. I am worried a child will be hurt soon when people swerve the bad area, as it’s near where kids cross for the primary school. Please can this get resurfaced; at least up to the end of the path - it really is a necessity as we are all worried about either breaking our cars or hitting someone.
