What if a highway ended like bike lanes do, in the dirt?

This is the new bike lane at the Gipps-Drayton Road 'improvements'.

Note how the bike lane ends, and leaves the rider facing gravel ahead, with no appropriate road markings to indicate to rider and driver alike that the bike rider is about to merge with fast moving traffic.

Maybe TRC intends to continue the bike lane at some time in the future but until that time arrives, the correct road markings need to be put in place.
