Build up of slippery residue on pavement

The pavement In this area I believe is known to be slippery and its often pressure washed by the council to avoid accidents. There is a build up of black residue that when dry isn't too much of an issue, however when wet it's like black ice. And there is evidence of more people slipping here other than myself. I believe this must have taken a number of months to have built up to this amount.
