The GreenWay is an urban green corridor in Sydney's Inner West. It is a bush corridor and a hub for community arts and groups, bushcare, walking and cycling. The GreenWay Community is maintaining a campaign to build an off-road shared path from the Cooks River to Iron Cove. This trail was to be built as part of the Inner West Light Rail Extension but was deferred by the state government. As an interim measure we have marked out an alternative route to help people travel along the corridor.

We have to except existing bushcare sites as part of the Biodiversity Compensation Package or the community will lose access.
This strip of land would be a great bushcare site at the heart of bandicoot territory and there is room to fit in the GreenWay shared path too. With the removal of the rails tracks on what is termed "the western fork" which bounds one side of Jack Shanahan Reserve in Dulwich Hill this section of the rail corridor is now officially disused. We have asked for it to be included in the Biodiversity Compensation Package but the cost of remendiating it ($100,000) is considered too much by TfNSW. Instead it is being used to store spoil from the light rail works. An opportunity missed. We will continue to lobby for its remediation and conversion to a bushcare site.
With the GreenWay alternative route being marked this week (12 June) with stencils and signs why not explore the GreenWay this weekend? It takes about 30 minutes to do the entire route on a bike. If you prefer to walk you could make a day of it stopping at a cafe along the way. A4 maps or A3 maps are available to download and the large interpretative signs scattered along the corridor all have maps on the back of them. Enjoy the GreenWay!
