Almost killed on Blackfriars Bridge (again)

Riding North over Blackfriars bridge and heading up toward Farringdon Road, I was almost completely taken off my bike by a stream of cars turing left onto the Embankment, totally cutting through the bike lane. The problem is that (inexplicably) the bike lane markings come to an abrupt stop at the traffic light and do not continue across the junction.

The junction there has just been extensively redesigned. Did no one consider this?

Look forward to hearing if anyone else has experienced similar dangers at this busy intersection where hundreds of bike commuters must ride every day.
