Road markings confusing rockingham road to A6003

Reported via desktop in the Road Markings - Worn/Faded category anonymously at 10:27, Wednesday 12 May 2021

Sent to Northamptonshire Highways less than a minute later. ref: 2721067.

When entering the roundabout northbound from rockingham road, there are three lanes, 1 left, 2 straight on, 3 straight on and right. Due to what appears to be lane changes on the roundabout when you get onto the roundabout there are only two lanes straight on and right, although you cannot see this until the last minute. This leads to vehicles finding themselves in the wrong lane and having to cut into traffic to go up A6003. It appears that a lane has been removed on the roundabout. Personally it looks as if it would work better if lanes in rockingham road were 1 left and straight on, 2 straight on and 3 right . The lanes on the roundabout then need aligning. Alternatively the lanes in Rockingham Road coming onto the roundabout need reviewing.
