5 February 18: What do these lines mean?

Hello folks.

I need your help. It’s a matter of great colour importance – well, I say great importance but it’s really only of great importance to colour junkies like me.

Walking through London recently, I noticed these orange road markings (bottom left) and thought a) “They’re pretty! (Especially how they look with the red)” and b) “What does the orange actually mean?”

I’ve been googling like crazy and am none the wiser, so much so that I’m starting to think it’s actually meant to be red but someone put a bit of yellow in the paint. Any thoughts? This is the kind of thing that keeps me awake at night :))) Please help me to combat colour-induced insomnia, I beg you.
