The whole street needs a resurface

The potholes on the street were patched really poorly about 2 years ago, I witnessed their quick fix technique with my own eyes, they just lumped a tub of tar from a bucket off the back of their pick-up van into the road and bashed it with a mallet 3 times and drove to the next one. The whole street was done in less than 5 minutes and it shows. The patchwork has been deteriorating since then and since last year they have become extremely deep, the whole road needs a full resurface, I call for Kevin Stewart MSP to kindly take a look at the whole Ruthrieston Crescent from Holburn street up Ruthrieston Crescent and up through the circle and consider temp partial road closers to resurface the whole street (now's the time to do it during the pandemic when people are using their cars less and parked in driveways!), it's unsafe and looks good awful and with so many elderly in the area I do worry there will be an accident. I see there have been some better attempts from the fibre internet contractors who have done a much better job at patching the road properly, a better job done with a better aesthetic finish as well. The depth of the one outside my house in particular is a nuisance and I fear will cause damage to my car leaving the driveway (where other cars are parked at the other side of the street it's difficult to manoeuvre this) and the small stone chips will cause damage when cars are passing too, even at a slow pace, I have to park my car as far up my drive and as close to the house to avoid this chip damage happening. It also causes me to waken at night when cars drive over it as my bedroom lies at the front of the property, that one in particular is becoming more of a nuisance day by day.
