Thanks for your email.
I am also a motorbike/Scooter rider. If I was elected I would be seeking a
review of the Bicycle lane network with the bike of Motorcycles and Scooters
sharing some lanes along major article roads such as Royal Parade. Albert
Street and Punt Road and St Kilda Road. Sadly the MRA do not have a voice
and needs of motorbike and scooter riders often go missing when the City
Council designs our road infrastructure. I would like to see the interests
of Motorbike and Scooter riders taken more seriously.

In response to your questions The Our Melbourne team are committing to a city wide review of Parking which would include the adequacy of Parking for PTW. We will be inviting all stakeholder groups to participate in the review.
It is obvious that more trips taken by alternate methods than cars will contribute to lower congestion and improve the sustainability and amenity of the City. We will be keen to implement policies that encourage this , whilst not impacting adversely on residents and businesses.
Any scheme will have to be properly costed and have broad community support.
In terms of the motorcycle precinct celebration our Neighbourhood development policy 9 see attached
is designed to support such a promotion.
