The draft design plan of the central and southern in-corridor missing links of the Cooks to Cove GreenWay is now available for comment.
The Cooks to Cove GreenWay is a biodiversity and active transport corridor linking the Cooks River to Iron Cove. The GreenWay is on the traditional lands of the Gadigal-Wangal people.
It mostly follows the route of the Inner West Light Rail and Hawthorne Canal and features cycle paths and foreshore walks, cultural and historical sites, artworks, cafes, bushcare sites and a range of parks, playgrounds and sporting facilities. Once completed it will measure 5.6km from Cooks River to Iron Cove.
We are completing this project in stages and delivering beautiful parks and natural areas, sporting facilities and public artworks along the corridor. Some sections of the GreenWay are already completed or in progress, such as the Bay Run upgrade, Richard Murden Reserve in Haberfield and Weston Street and the Hercules Street crossing in Dulwich Hill.
After more than 10 years of campaigning by the Inner West community and councils, funding has now been secured to complete the ‘missing links’: the central and southern sections of the GreenWay from Parramatta Road through Lewisham West and Dulwich Hill to the Cooks River. These sections run alongside the light rail line and are referred to as in-corridor works.
Council has engaged a building contractor (Gartner Rose) to complete the missing links in the GreenWay corridor and to implement the GreenWay Masterplan.
After extensive community consultation on the Masterplan, it was adopted by Council in 2018. The GreenWay concept designs have received community feedback and were finalised in 2020.
Council's consultants have now prepared a draft design for review.
Key features of the Cooks to Cove GreenWay draft design plan include:
The draft design plan for the remaining in-corridor works of the GreenWay shows the extent of the Masterplan works in detail.
We have sought community feedback to ensure the draft designs are true to the 2018 Masterplan.
