Unclear road markings

This slip road has three lanes but the road markings are not clear as to the direction of those lanes when leaving the slip road. The round about cannot accomodate three lanes of traffic so is it safe to assume that the inside lane should be only for going down the Southend Road and the middle and outer lan for the A130? I ahve witnessed numerous near misses at this junction where all three lanes fromt he slip road try and navigate around the round about to the A130 (southend bound).
