Road markings on junction & corner poorly placed and hardly visible

I have seen at least 3 accidents at this junction and I only pass through a few times a week. Cars come speeding down the B4526 eastwards and swerve to continue down the B4526 (which is a left turn), sometimes colliding with stationary cars at the junction. The junction sticks out into where you would assume the road to be, but the road markings are so faded that it just isn't clear. Anyone approaching from the north down long toll lane will struggle to safely turn right or straight on as there's no way to see the cars approaching around the slight bend at 60mph. New road markings urgently required before someone is seriously injured, and a new road layout should be considered. Limited photos as it's a very dangerous junction to stop at.

This site has therefore been added to the list of sites for road marking refurbishment during the 2020/2021 financial year.
