The pot holes around the traffic lights as you come out of Spinney Hill Road, and again as you turn right onto Kettering round, are now a serious hazard. This is now quite serious as due to the worsening size of the potholes and the fact it is now darker in the mornings they are difficult to see for a cyclist. I cycle into work at 5:30am, and it's becoming harder to avoid these holes in the dark, and when it's raining it's practically impossible. It's now so dangerous, I have twice in the last few weeks hit part of one the holes and it's caused me to narrowly avoid coming off my bike. While it was raining last week, I actually hit the hole as it was impossible to see, and lost control of the back of my bike, and I hurt myself. It is only a matter of the time before a serious accident happens, and as we head into winter this is now a very dangerous situation, and has been ongoing for well over 6months and deteriorating rapidly.
