Road surface dangerously broken up - A30

The road surface, which I've complained about twice before now with little response from Wiltshire CC (other than 'we'll look into it'), is deteriorating at a more rapid rate due to the recent cold 'snap' and wet weather.

The speed limit on this stretch of road is 50mph but most drivers are now having to slow down to ~30mph to avoid damage to their vehicles as they pass over the damaged area.

The damage is on the A30 road approaching the Lopcombe corner junction (where the A30 and A343 join). If one is driving towards Salisbury from the Stockbridge direction the damage is at the bottom of the hill (the hill that you descend after entering the 50mph limit of Lopcombe corner).

Please, please, please don't keep ignoring this damage Wiltshire CC. There will be an accident due to this road surface sooner or later!
