What is the best way to repair this Driveway

Years of neglect has taken toll on Driveway. While there are minor cracks that I can repair fairly easily, there is a patch of about 3 sft just near where Driveway meets road which has multiple cracks.
Would it be better to repair the cracks or remove that section and patch the hole ? If later, how deep do I need to go ?

No idea what your referring to or what type of driveway you have, some pictures would really help!

You don't even mention of what material the driveway is constructed. No way we can answer with this little information.

Sorry for not adding the pics . Added now.

I also added a third picture for another (related ) question .

Question 2 -- The area where the Driveway meets the foundation wall has cracked open. Do I fill that with Concrete Mix Or cold asphalt ?

Best material to repair this Driveway

The driveway has alligator cracks and is a little sunk just near where it meets the road (Pic 1)

There is a decent size crack where it meets the garage/foundation wall (Pic 2)

There are a couple of small cracks too

What would be best material to repair these ? For the alligator crack, I am planning to cut out the area and pour cold asphalt

1) For cutting, I know a circular saw with Diamond blade is suggested, but can I do it with my angle grinder ?


2) Suggestions for cold asphalt -- there are so many different brands .

3) For the crack near garage (pic 2) , shall I use Asphalt or will stick do a better job ? The ones that need to be heated with a butane torch .. link below.
