  • This pot hole is extremely large and unavoidable in busy traffic. It's almost impossible to not hit this. As such I instantly popped a tyre upon crossing this section of the road. Disappointed to see that this was reported over a month ago by other road users and has not been repaired.

  • These pot holes are now considered to be extremely dangerous it is advisable to avoid this roundabout completely and go via Kettering, much to my annoyance the police have not been onto as someone is going to get seriously hurt here, also it’s about time that the lane white lining be restored to the road as there is none at all.

  • Whilst I appreciate the need to put a TMO in place to fix these holes, NCC were first aware of these specific holes in November and didn’t inspect until 30th December. that is a failure to act within your own timescales and allowed a severe hazard to continue a motorcyclist could be thrown from the bike hitting these. The lack of prompt action is unacceptable. At least this appears to be a permanent fix rather than one of the usual, crap temporary fixtures that re-open. As per the NCC comment on one of the other reports, I hope that a 2 night closure means you are going to rectify all of the holes in this roundabout.
