In the last couple of days I've witnessed some near misses between cyclists and other road users on the crossroads between Oxford St and Anvil Street and Gas Lane due to lack of road markings

I'm one of the cyclists who regularly has near misses at this junction, and had another one today. Two weeks ago I had 'words' at the temporary lights on Anvil St with a motorist turning left from Oxford Street. He insisted it wasn't a junction so he had priority and didn't need to stop. On that occasion I was lucky there wasn't any traffic coming in the other direction or I would certainly be in hospital right now. There's three problems with this junction: 1) dotted lines at then end of Oxford Street are very faded, more so now than if you look at Google Street View. 2) the center line on Anvil Street is gone, if that was there it would give drivers a better indication that Anvil Street traffic has priority. 3) no 'give way' sign at the end of Oxford Street, which would help make the priority more obvious, even if lines fade. Please fix soon because the lack of clarity about who has priority is making this a dangerous junction, and I'm changing my route to work because of it. Right now a serious accident is inevitable.
