Road surface causing motorbike accidents

I'm not sure exactly what the damage to the road is but something is causing motorcyclists to slide on the road as they turn out of Devonshire street onto Great Portland Street (on the corner where Iberica restaurant is). I have seen three people come off of their bikes and skid along the road in one evening. No one was badly hurt but it could easily cause a collision if there had been more traffic at the time. Aside from the day it happened 3 times we have seen it happen on various other days as well, so it must be something that is wrong with the road surface, rather than an oil spillage or anything like that. We first saw this happen 2 weeks ago and have seen it every few days since.
