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!
The GreenWay has welcomed recent news from the Minister for Transport, Andrew Constance MP that school students will soon be able to travel on the Light Rail for free. From 1 July students will be able to apply online for the School Opal card for travel on the light rail and will then be able to start travelling for free to and from school from the start of the third school term, which is fantastic news for families living along the Light Rail corridor. It will help address traffic congestion on our roads and reinforces the role of the GreenWay/light rail as a 21st century sustainable transport corridor serving the needs of the Inner West.
Ashfield Council is currently developing a Parks Strategy to properly plan for the future use & maintenance of park land in the local area. They would love to hear the views of locals who use the spaces. You can find out more about the plan here or fill out a survey here here.
