The GreenWay Sustainability Project was a $1.83 million project funded by the NSW Environmental Trust focused on working towards the vision of the GreenWay.
The Project was a partnership between Ashfield (lead), Leichhardt, Marrickville and City of Canterbury Councils which started in 2009 and concluded in September 2012.
Based at Ashfield Council, the Project worked closely with partner Councils, community and state agency stakeholders, including integrating the Project's activities with the Inner West Light Rail Extension.

The Project worked at a strategic level with the partner Councils, state agencies and community groups. This included coordinating activities and developing a model for the future management of the GreenWay.
The Project also worked to improve the environment of the GreenWay and to promote the GreenWay to the local community through bushcare, education and the promotion of walking and cycling.
The GreenWay Project delivered an exciting program of activities for Councils and the local community.

All activities were regularly monitored through an evaluation program.
The Project worked with local Councils, the GreenWay Steering Committee and Transport for NSW on the implementation of the GreenWay as part of the light rail extension from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill.
While the GreenWay Sustainability Project has now finished, the partner councils are still working together to achieve the GreenWay vision. The councils have committed to an ongoing GreenWay Program which includes the funding of a GreenWay Place Manager position. Regular reports on activities and events are included in the monthly GreenWay E-news (subscribe from the home page) and the News and Events sections of the website.
