Deep cracked sloping driveway

Hello , Hoping all customers are well, My task at the moment is a deep cracked

sloping driveway , my driveway is on a sloping block running from footpath down

to car port , the crack starts at the top  3cm wide & 2.5cm deep , tapering down

to 1cm wide &  1.5cm deep    8 to 10  metre  length  driveway , with cracks

going across every 2metres ,  these cracks are not zic zac , that are straight line

going down  & across ,   It needs  a  new driveway  no money available

 

Any good ideas , would be most rewarded in kind 

Thank you  from The Phantom

Hi prestidge2
I'm no expert, but it seems to me that whoever laid your driveway, didn't install any metal reinforcement, which on a sloping block, would by my reckonig be essential.
I can't see any way to properly fix the problem cheaply, & all I can suggest is cosmetic, try massaging a sloppy mix of cement into the cracks, & finish it off by running a wire brush over the fill to make less visible.
