Insufficient markings on Lane 1

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

Drivers joining the motorway at Junc 3 in Lane 1 tend to move immediately into Lane 2 even though Lane 1 is empty. It needs at least one extra Straight Ahead arrows in Lane 1 much closer to the entrance to act as a reminder for drivers that the lane continues Lane 1 and is not the end of a slip road.
