Domed cat-eyes are a hazard to cyclists

The domed cats eyes you have used here are a hazard to cyclists as they are in the exact line you take as a rider to come off the slip road and onto the road leading to Woodeaton. These cats eyes can't be the right type for this kind of junction as they represent such a hazard to cyclists. A rider hitting one of these cats eyes is going to fall off - and the traffic coming up the slip road is usually travelling at significant speeds.
