I note this was reported before but no action was taken and road has got worse. When turning from High St left in Drayton Rd there are a number of potholes and worse deep grooves/cracks on Drayton Rd right by the white give way lines, these extend from the kerb on west side of high st almost to centre line of High st and therefore it is impossible to cycle around them. The position of these holes and cracks run east to west ALONG drayton road meaning a cyclist hits them WHILE FRONT WHEEL IS TRYING TO TURN A 90 DEGREE TURN and handlebars are nearly forced out of hands by wheel being jammed into holes while bike is turning, also road is very dark here with poor sight for driver due to road layout. If a cyclist falls off there is no way a car, given the speed on Drayton Rd, will see person in time. Though the holes MAYBE(you judge) individually not he greatest please inspect and fix based on the position on a blind junction and potential for fatal dismounting of cyclists.
