Still, why would they implement 'solution' that is inherently more dangerous than riding on the road? New riders aren't going to anticipate a dooring until they recover from their first one, and that's likely to put them off completely. Those that do anticipate it ride in the lane.
Call me cynical, but perhaps that option is offered by the RTA purely so that they can say such lanes are official facilities when it would be better not to. Almost like not doing it and saying they did.
The bike lanes in the document are wider than many I've seen in practice on some narrow streets.
