Recent lane lines idiotic

Reported via desktop in the Road markings (NH) category anonymously at 10:28, Sun 26 March 2023

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 4359420.

The dotted lane lines recently painted to forcefully form two lanes at the head of the lane joining the Maidstone bound m20 (originally one lane) involved me in an extremely close collision incident. The second lane disappears after a few metres! I was behind another car when a big black jeep powered up the side of me in this outer lane and found his lane had vanished! I had to break hard and navigate slightly left to avoid him hitting me! The lane needs arrows to warn drivers the lane ends and to move into one lane. I have previously complained to kcc highways about the awful lane markings on this roundabout as I believed they could cause accidents. Apparently Nat highways painted the lanes without consulting them. I nearly had a serious accident through no fault of myself hence this urgent feedback!
