The council says benefits of trialling motorcycle and scooter parking on footpaths in the city include:
Meeting existing demand for motorcycle and scooter parking spaces,
Encouraging more motorcycles and scooters into the city, and
Explore the potential to set up other locations based on the trial outcomes/feedback.
Their principles in identifying suitable locations are low-pedestrian volumes, places where it won’t impede pedestrians, where there is demand for such parking ( such as near offices and commercial precincts and “left-over spaces” with low potential for other uses.
