Dozens of Melbourne car parks could be about to be turned into motorbike parking spaces which would then cause a ban to come into effect in the CBD.

The city of Melbourne are set to debate whether 36 parking spaces should become 151 motorcycle bays on Tuesday.

If successful it would mean riders would then be banned from parking along sections of Flinders, Bourke, Collins and William streets near the new spaces.

Lord Mayor Sally Capp said “In collecting experiences and data for our Transport Strategy 2030, residents, workers and visitors overwhelmingly told us they were feeling overcrowded in the city, so we’re doing something about it.”

There are about 1300 motorcycle and scooter riders in the area each day and it’s rising due to the success of delivery apps.
