NT road builders

I had a fantastic days riding around Grizdale and Windermere in the lake district, just at the end of my ride, looking forward to the last downhill section to the shore of Windermere, when suddenly i hit a patch of (effectively) ice, where the nt had built a path out of stones that apparently turn to ice when it rains.

It was so slippery that i struggled to walk down it. Now i understand that erosion is an issue however all the other paths where fine without being built into a road, and if you are going to build a road, then a stone that doesnt become as slippery as ice when it rains (which is not exactly unusual in the lake district) would be appreciated!
