Unclear Road Markings

Reported in the Road Traffic Signs and Road Markings category anonymously at 13:17, Wed 23 October 2019

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council 4 minutes later

From as far back as hightown Road and Horton view on the Oxford Road going towards the Banbury cross there are 2 lanes for straight ahead and right turning.. However as you approach upper windsor street the Markings dissappear / narrow causing traffic to squeeze together, back off or have an incident approximately where sycamore resource centre is, the Markings then do widen at the upper windsor street traffic lights.. Please make the Markings clear on weather it is 2 lanes, 1 Lane or a merge as currently the 2 lanes just disappear and cars squeeze each other into 1 lane i notice that turning left from Upper windsor street onto the Oxford Road is far wider than turning right onto Upper-Windsor street perhaps leading up to the traffic lights as you travel towards the Banbury Cross from Sainsbury's/ the Horton the left side of the road could be painted in away that 2 cars can fit side by side all the way up to upper winsor Street or at least white markings that indicate 2 lanes becoming one then 2 again..
