Transforming the City towards Walkability: the Case Study of Central Makkah, Saudi Arabia

Walkability is a concept widely used in walking behaviour studies to describe how ready an environment is to accommodate walking. In increasingly developing countries, however, the value of walking is still being recognised, and not enough data on this critical mode of transportation exists. This research investigates the notion of walkability in the context of an urban area in the centre of one of the holiest places in the Islamic world.
