This metal plate in the bike lane on Windmill Road and Langley Close has been worn smooth and has no traction when it rains. This is very hazardous for cyclists who can easily have their bikes slide out from under them as soon as their wheel passes over a slick metal plate like this in rain or frost. On such a busy road with motorists often not giving 1.5m distance when they pass cyclists, this could result in a serious or fatal accident.
