The left lane may become the safest place to cycle. Parking is being moved to the left so there will be parked cars the whole stretch of that lane. Cyclists in practice usually ride in the parking lane between the line and the parked cars, even though it's actually safer to take up a whole traffic lane. On the left though, the door zone is less dangerous because less passenger doors open than drivers side doors (average car occupancy is about 1.2). Still, we're debating what sucks less for bikes in the absence of a proper solution.
