Lane Guides on Roundabout Inconsistent with written markings (M32 Junction 2 / B4469)

The lines demarcating lanes when approaching the M32 Northbound entry slip lane are not consistent with the road markings applied prior to the traffic lights controlling traffic on the roundabout. Either the "M32(N)" marking needs to be removed from the middle lane and the arrow replaced with right turn only, or the trajectory of the markings guiding the left lane to the exit should be modified. I have experienced a near miss at this location after approaching the roundabout from the east on Muller Road. The lane guidance markings appear to be relatively recent (they don't appear on streetview). Hopefully the attached sketch illustrates the problem. Left image reflect current configuration, right image shows revised lane guides.

This was a scheme that was initially funded by the local neighbourhood partnership. The lining has not been finished due initially to bad weather and then because the traffic management for the lining and signage work would clash with essential works taking place on the M32. When we have a gap in the other works' schedules we will get the lining completed.

Although lane guides are now present, there is still a lane clash between the Easton lane and M32 right hand lane. I have experienced 2 near misses and witnessed far more. The Easton lane is the left hand M32 lane and is turning right, whereas the right hand M32 lane is turning left. Evidently they cross one another. The lane demarcations indicate that the right hand M32 lane requires a mandatory lane change whereas the Easton lane does not. Furthermore the Easton lane later clashes with the fishponds lane.
Clashes shown on photo 1 and suggested changes on photo 2.
