Since the election the Government has not publicly confirmed its
commitment to this important and much wanted community asset. It is
essential that we ensure that the government is fully aware of the
depth and strength of the community support for this project.
You can show your support by either sending our form letter or you can create your own. We have provided so points to help you.
Many thousands of volunteer hours have been spent by the community over the past 12 years. It is too good to lose.
We are encouraging all supporters of the GreenWay to send a letter to the NSW Government to let them know how much you want the GreenWay and asking them to confirm their commitment to the GreenWay and the Inner West Light Rail project. It is important to make the NSW Government aware of how much support there is for the GreenWay and Light Rail and that this is not just a local project, but part of a much larger network of shared cycling and walking paths that are the future for healthy active lifestyles and sustainable transport.
