The volume of car traffic is quite low, as it only gets cars coming up A'Beckett from Elizabeth, (and I'd guess the odd car headed south on Swanston, where the driver ignores the ample signage). Bikes coming off the tramstop treatment largely had the lane to themselves. This morning I spied this...
That shot is pointed north, back up Swanston. So, they've painted the bike lane that used to be there back on - pretty much. It's a shame, as it would've been a great opportunity to trial some sharrows in the city.
Dashed lines - is that a bike lane or a "make drivers aware cyslists can be here too" kinda thing? Our bastardisation of sharrows, effectively, which don't do what sharrows do.

Nice looking deathtrap drain grate a little way back behind the rider. Only takes up 80% of the lane width.

(b) ending at the nearest of the following—
(i) an end bicycle lane sign applying to the lane;
(ii) an intersection (unless the lane is at the unbroken side of the continuing road at a T-intersection or continued across the intersection by broken lines);
(iii) if the road ends at a dead end—the end of the road.
