Cycle lane road markings almost disappeared

At traffic lights on Gloucester Road heading north with right turn into Wessex Avenue there is, or was, markings for a narrow cycle lane (~1m wide). The white lining for this cycle lane has almost completely worn away. Consequently motor vehicles seem to assume there are 2 lanes solely for motor vehicles: one for straight on and one for right into Wessex Avenue. I suspect there is really only one lane for motor vehicles and those wanting to turn right into Wessex Avenue should wait until after the lights until pulling over to the right. At the moment the worn and arguably inadequate road markings dangerously impede cyclists. Suggest the cycle lane markings are made clearer and there is some indication that there should only be one line of motor vehicles directly in front of the lights. Thanks
