Arrows show forwards instead of right

On approach to this roundabout there are four arrows painted on the ground.

The left two are for the A4020 and they point left, Ideally they should point straight.

The right two arrows point straight when they should point right for the direction of the A412.

I regularly have near misses on this round about where drives are positioned in the righthand lanes and don't turn towards the A412 but instead cut across to the A4020.

I believe few drivers read the A road numbers and just follow arrows.

Can this be corrected to avoid a potential accident?

Thanks for all your efforts in keeping our roads safe. I really appreciate the behind the scenes work you all do.
