Lane arrows cause problems

I commute via Halswell Junction Rd coming from Halswell and turning right into Springs Rd. It is sometimes difficult and dangerous to get from the left turning lane at the roundabout with the motorway into the right turning lane for the upcoming Springs Rd roundabout. Some vehicles ignore the existing right lane right-turn-only arrow at the motorway roundabout and go straight ahead. This lane is usually empty, encouraging drivers to take this option and, maybe they don't see the arrow until it is too late. A safer option would be to change the right-turn-only arrow into a right-or-straight-ahead arrow - thus avoiding the need for drivers like me to have to attempt to change lanes in a very short stretch of rod.
