GreenWay central missing links now on exhibition

Tuesday, 25 September, 2018

The GreenWay vision for the Inner West is another step closer to reality after Council placed the development application for the corridor’s central missing links on public exhibition.

Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne said plans for the 5.8km environmental and active travel corridor linking the Iron Cove with the Cooks River via Dulwich Hill, Lewisham, Summer Hill and Haberfield are now on public exhibition until Tuesday, 9 October.

“The GreenWay will be a community asset for generations to come as an environment and active transport pathway that will draw both residents and visitors to the inner west,” he said.

“Over the last 12 months, Council developed the GreenWay Master Plan to guide the delivery of landscaping and infrastructure within the corridor over the next 10 to 15 years with extensive community input.

“I encourage all residents to comment on the exhibited design for the missing links works that covers from just north of Parramatta Road to just south of Old Canterbury Road. It also facilitates a range of passive and active recreation opportunities and incorporates local places for culture and art.”

The GreenWay central missing links plans on exhibition include:

  • A new suspended path below Parramatta Road and over the Hawthorne Canal

  • An upgraded shared path through Cadigal Reserve

  • A rest stop under the main western rail line at the southern end of Cadigal Reserve

  • A shared path ramp up from Cadigal Reserve to a new tunnel below Longport Street

  • A new shared path tunnel below Longport Street

  • A shared path ramp up from the new tunnel below Longport Street to Smith Street

  • A new shared path though light rail corridor between Lewisham West Light Rail stop and Old Canterbury Road

  • A rest stop in the light rail corridor just north of Old Canterbury Road

  • Associated lighting of the shared path

  • Associated landscaping adjacent to the shared path

  • Tree removals to facilitate path construction

  • A separated cycleway in Smith Street to connect the GreenWay to the regional cycle route on Longport Street

The Development Application will be determined by the Sydney Central Planning Panel, which is independent of Council. Planning Panels operate across New South Wales to provide independent, merit-based decision making on regionally significant development.

Depending on the outcome of the Development Application, construction of the central missing links, from Parramatta Road to Old Canterbury Road, is expected to commence in 2019. It is anticipated that construction of the southern missing links, from Old Canterbury Road to the Cooks River, will commence in 2020.
