Road markings required for left hand lane and right hand lane

We really could do with road markings on the Ruscote Avenue/Lockhead Close roundabout. From the direction of travelling from Aldi/McDonalds to Tesco/Henef way, there are no road markings for the two lanes approaching the roundabout, meaning, quite often, people are incorrectly using the right hand lane to go straight ahead on the roundabout and end up cutting people up using the left hand lane correctly to go straight ahead on the roundabout.

From what I understand of this particular roundabout, the left hand lane should be for going left on to Lockheed Close OR straight ahead to approach the A361 roundabout only, and the right hand lane is to use for the third exit only, to come back on yourself from Ruscote Avenue for those vehicles that can turn left only when coming out of Alid/McDonalds.

There is much debate with Banbury residents on whether the right hand lane can be used for the 2nd exit of the roundabout, however, as the entrance of the 2nd exit is one lane only, I believe I am correct in thinking this should be for left lane users only.

Further to this, Lockheed Close has road markings on the approach to this roundabout, as does the A422 have road markings on the approach to the roundabout, so unsure why Ruscote avenue, approaching from Alid direction does not? I've attached a screenshot from google map images and marked with a red marker where I believe we need the markings to advise vehicles of the correct lanes to use for this roundabout

  • We need the line makings really soon. So many people put others in danger also going wrong and then swearing at innocent people while little children are next to. In addition have to do emergency stop which is not safe especially for little babys in the cars.
