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.

Biodiversity & Revegetation Compensation Package for the light rail extension

Many people have commented on the clearing of vegetation in the GreenWay (rail) corridor for platforms and other structures associated with the light rail extension. Although much of this vegetation is not native it still provides valuable habitat for small birds, reptiles, insects and occasionally bandicoots. Under condition B18 of the approval for the Inner West Light Rail extension there needs to be a Revegetation and Light Rail Compensation Package as part of the development.

What does this mean?


Beyond the tracks

The disused rail tracks bounding the western edge of Jack Shanahan Reserve in Dulwich Hill were removed in November. The GreenWay Program and the Friends of the GreenWay are investigating how to access this land so that it could be used for a shared path and native planting.


Thank You Community!


To our mystery supporters in the community- thank you!

92% would use the GreenWay Trail!

The results are finally in from the 2012 GreenWay Survey.  92% said they would use the extended path if it was built and almost a quarter of all respondents had signed the GreenWay petition. In terms of getting active around the GreenWay, it was positive to find that overall physical activity, both walking and cycling has increased in 2012 compared to the 2010 survey results. The full report can be downloaded here.
