Cycle lane stops short

The painted cycle lane (coming across the crossroads from the north) stops before there's easy access to the lane on the Slade pavement. It's not easy to cycle straight up next to the lamppost and among pedestrians waiting to cross, and in the dark it's not clear where the next lowered bit of kerb is. It would be better if the painting just went on to the lowered kerb, with clear markings to show where it's safe to ride up.

This problem still exists. I believe it was marked on the plans for The Slade to have a short cycle lane (continuing on from the 'elephants feet) on the road and an arrow on to the stepped path. However this has not been completed leaving a confusing facility, and leaving cyclists exposed to motor traffic overtaking as it accelerates after the traffic lights.

When is this going to be solved? Oxford is actively promoting cycling, but is not providing a safe environment for it.
