No problems. Apologies for my confusion.

I somewhat agree, and I do think that we can agree on the dangers of 'dooring' lanes.
That said the treatment on this road is very common in the area and from my frequent experience it works well with minimal conflict. Most motorists are patient and respectful of cyclists and conflict does not occur.
Ideally I'd like to see the traffic markings get updated to cyclist merge lines. This reduces confusion from cyclists and motorists alike.
