The city of Melbourne is considering restricting vehicles in the CBD, lowering the speed limit and increasing parking fees for on-street parking in a bid to force cars out of the city centre.

Two discussion papers are expected to be released on Thursday outlining the radical plan to encourage a pedestrian thoroughfare, The Herald Sun reports.

A 30km/h speed limit would be imposed, streets in the CBD would be reduced to a single lane each way and several left and right turns would be blocked, to stop motorists crossing the Hoddle Grid, bounded by Flinders, La Trobe, Spencer and Spring streets.
