What is a Walk Score?
The Walk Score is a reflection of how easy it is to get around without a car.
Nichol Street in Mundaring suggests a Neigbourhood Walk score of 60 indicating that it is ‘somewhat walkable’ meaning some stores and amenities are within walking distance, but many everyday trips still require a bike, public transportation, or car.
What can we do to improve walkability in Mundaring to revitalise the town centre experiences?
