Greenway In-Corridor design and construction update

Wednesday 12 October 2022

This October, Inner West Council awarded contractor Gartner Rose the contract for the design and construction of the next phase of the GreenWay project, the Greenway In-Corridor.

The GreenWay is a 5.6km corridor linking the Cooks River at Earlwood with the Parramatta River at Iron Cove.

Since 2019, Council has been working on sections of the GreenWay including the Richard Murden Reserve path and lighting upgrade (completed December 2020), the Dobroyd Point Seawall upgrade (completed August 2021), Local streets upgrade through Dulwich Hill (completed in January 2022), a High Voltage Electrical Feeder relocation (in progress) and the Bay Run path and lighting upgrade (in progress).

We are now commencing the in-Corridor phase of the project. The Greenway In-Corridor consists of two discrete areas known as the central and southern links. The central links area extends from north of Parramatta Road, Leichhardt to just south of Old Canterbury Road, Dulwich Hill, and the southern links area extends from Weston Street, Dulwich Hill to Hercules Street, Dulwich Hill.

The proposed works for the In-Corridor currently include:
- A suspended walkway under Parramatta Road and along the Hawthorne Canal
- A new path and upgraded natural areas in Gadigal Reserve
- A tunnel under Longport Street
- A new path, parklands and natural areas in the light rail corridor near Lewisham West
- A signalised crossing at Old Canterbury Road including the closure of Weston Street
- A tunnel under Davis Street and a new boardwalk from Davis Street to Johnson Park
- Upgrade of Johnson Park including an upgraded path and playground
- A tunnel under Constitution Road and an elevated pathway through the light rail corridor from Constitution Road to New Canterbury Road
- A new path and upgraded natural areas in the light rail corridor near Hercules Street.

Councillor Mark Drury said, “For years the people of the Inner West have fought for the GreenWay – a state of the art cycling, pedestrian and biodiversity corridor, stretching across the Inner West.

“I’m thrilled that we’re continuing to progress with this project, keeping our promise to the community.”

Inner West Council is contributing $9.5 million to the works and has recently secured $9.8 million in additional funding from the NSW State Government.

The community will be presented with the draft detailed design in early 2023. They will then have the opportunity to provide feedback.

In the meantime, Council will continue to deliver works on the GreenWay including the High Voltage Electrical Feeder relocation and the Bay Run path and lighting upgrade.

Commencement of construction of the in-corridor works is anticipated from August 2023.
