Street prostitution is to be banned in large areas of Vienna's Prater district from September.
It is thought that as a result many of the prostitutes will move to the industrial zone in Liesing.
Gerald Bischof from the SPO said:
I don't think 300 new prostitutes will come, there simply isn't enough space, but there will definitely be an increase.
He hopes to get prostitution banned in Liesing. Over the past few months there has been 150 fines given out in the area - mainly due to prostitutes not having the correct identification and control cards on them.
