Dangerous lanes on roundabout

Reported in the Carriageway Defect category anonymously at 10:20, Fri 8 February 2019

This problem has not been fixed, the exact same issues are there that other drivers have reported. I was in the left hand lane clearly marked 'Barton' (I didn't change lanes as the council suggest in their previous post, clearly trying to pass the blame over to drivers). I was hit side on by a car coming across from the A40 (W) exactly how other drivers in previous posts have described. The situtation was utter confusion, the drivers coming across the A40 (W) seem to have no idea that drivers are allowed (according to the road markings) to come around to Barton in the left hand lane, across where they are filtering across. The lights are all green at the same time for these lanes. The Barton drivers are forced to dangerously cut across the A40(W) lanes. There are no warnings signs and no clear indictation of who should give way. I don't understand why the previous posts have been designated as fixed, the issue is not fixed. It's not safe to turn to Barton from the left hand lane with the current roundabout layout, this needs to be altered as soon as possible.
