What is the reason for the yellow criss-cross lines painted on the road here?

A To prevent queuing traffic from blocking the junction on the left
Explaination
Yellow ‘box junctions’ like this are often used where it’s busy. Their purpose is to keep the junction clear for crossing traffic. Don’t enter the painted area unless your exit is clear. The exception to this is when you are turning right and are only prevented from doing so by oncoming traffic or by other vehicles waiting to turn right.
B To mark out an area for trams only
C To mark the entrance lane to a car park
D To warn you of the tram lines crossing the road
