GreenWay Missing Links

What is the GreenWay?

The GreenWay is a 5.8km environmental and active travel corridor linking the Iron Cove at Leichhardt/Lilyfield with the Cooks River at Earlwood via Dulwich Hill, Lewisham, Summer Hill and Haberfield.
Following the route of the Inner West Light Rail, the GreenWay features bike paths and foreshore walks, cultural and historical sites, cafes, bushcare sites and a range of parks, playgrounds and sporting facilities.


Completing the GreenWay Missing Links

The inner west community and local councils have been campaigning for over 10 years to complete the GreenWay. The NSW Government and the Inner West Council have secured funding towards the costs, this will unlock approximately 3ha of open space not currently accessible to the community. For the first time you'll be able to walk or ride easily and safely the length of the route.


Cooks to Cove GreenWay concept design

Background

In October-November 2017 we sought community input to develop the GreenWay Master Plan which was adopted by the elected Council following public exhibition in June/August 2018.


Draft Concept Design

Now the GreenWay has progressed to the next stage. Based on the Master Plan, we've developed the next stage - the draft Concept Design.


This includes:

  • Upgrade of the Bay Run separated path, lighting and seawall from the UTS Haberfield club to Lilyfield Road
  • Upgraded open space on the Lilyfield Road bridge
  • Upgrade of the GreenWay shared path and lighting in Richard Murden Reserve
  • New open space in the light rail corridor at Lewisham West, including a new dog off leash area and ecological spaces
  • A new shared path and lighting through the light rail corridor between Weston Street and Johnson Park, including a new tunnel under Davis Street
  • A new shared path and lighting through the light rail corridor between Johnson park and New Canterbury Road including a tunnel under Constitution Road and an underpass below New Canterbury Road
  • New open space in the light rail corridor behind Hercules Street including naturalised creek and ecological areas
  • Upgrades of the GreenWay route along Weston Street, Ness Avenue and Garnet Street
