Dangerous exit causing conflicts with motor traffic no forward or right turn provision for new segregated cycle lane at Strand Road

The way the new segregated cycle lane ends at Strand Road puts you in direct conflict with motor traffic if a user is wishing to travel straight on Fishergate Hill or right onto Broadgate.

The painted cycle lane bends left along Strand Road but there is no provision for continuing straight or right.

You can join through the toucan crossing but you are in direct conflict with any motor vehicles travelling the same way. Exiting the cycle lane and joining the main carriageway also puts you in conflict and when traffic is backed up drivers are driving over the solid white cycle lane making exiting difficult.

A simple fix that would greatly improve the experience here would be for the green paint to be continued onwards towards Fishergate Hill to join up with the ASL at the lights ideally with priority over motor traffic using road markings to inform drivers to give way to users travelling straight.
