Welcome to the GreenWay website!

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.  

This website is a portal to all GreenWay related activities in the catchment. Get involved in the site - register and add community events, send us resource materials, and add comments.  With your feedback we will continue to improve and evolve this site - let us know what you think!

GM tours the GreenWay

Sydney City Centre Access Strategy open for comments

The NSW Government have released the Sydney City Centre Access Strategy which outlines future plans for the all modes of transport in, out and around the city centre. Unfortunately the connectivity does not extend to bicycle paths. There is no consideration of bicycle path linkages beyond the city centre. The GreenWay shared path is not mentioned but the Inner West light rail extension is. Cycling and walking are legitimate modes of transport and need to be given proper consideration.  View the Strategy and make comments here. Comments close on 25th October.

Biodiversity and Revegetation Compensation Package update

We have to except existing bushcare sites as part of the Biodiversity Compensation Package or the community will lose access.


Bushcare Opportunity dashed

P1010036This 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.
