Road layout dangerous

Hi This slip road needs amending Coastbound coming of m2 and j3 The development of the lord lees roundabout is years away This junction from 330 in the afternoon can take 30 mins easy It’s dangerous You only have to watch the volume of cars pushing in and blocking lane 1 nearly getting hit by other cars and lorries someone is going get hurt seriously

The easy answer and a quic short term fix Split the lanes The first lane stays as the first lane and goes towards lordswood etc only then lane one has a later entry point to the right hand lane of the slip road for traffic towards bluebell hill It’s a similar way to coastbound j7 on m20 as you did there and it works

So this doesn’t mean needing to wait for the scheme to start is a simple lane marking and signage fix before someone gets killed
