Hopefully further improvements can be made and a request for the installation of a bike lane and reduction in motor traffic lane to empower cyclists (and slow traffic speeds) is currently with state government agencies.
Perhaps I am misreading the above, but if it indicates a full sized bike lane on West Coast Drive, that would just about make it impossible for cars to pass a cyclist without entering the bike lane. However I am in favour of anything that slows down car traffic in environments where there are a lot of vulnerable road users.
West Coast Highway should be a one-way street for cars, with the other half of the road given over to cyclists riding in both directions.
