Confusion turning left from m32 to h’field

Drivers routinely turn left towards Horfield from middle lane of slip road. I have witnessed and have been party to several near collisions as I have turned left from slip road towards Horfield. Road signs/markings before lights indicate left lane only for both Ikea and h’field. However this does not translate when you enter roundabout and those in middle lane turn left when they should not.
Road markings need to be made clearer on entering roundabout.
Every time I see another person complain about this it angers me. BCC you have had well over a year of complaints on this site yet ignore them

This is still a major issue that I have been complaining about for a year now, the problem is getting worse, this afternoon an ambulance (no siren) changed into the middle lane at the lights only to cut back in two cars ahead of me causing chaos further back. Please please sort the signage it has been over a year since I was told this was being rectified

The council are not interested, I had a accident on this roundabout travelling from fishponds road with the shell garage being on my left, I’m in the left lane heading towards the roundabout, it’s clearly signed on the road arrows, the first lane is to go to Stapleton road, m32 and Eastgate, but the council are stating the left lane is a left lane ONLY and the middle lane is to go towards the m32 southbound and Eastgate. They clearly got unprofessional amateurs who don’t know how to complete correct signage. There is no way the middle lane is to go to the m32, this would mean you completely cut up the driver in lane 1 (left lane)
