GreenWay diagramThe GreenWay is a 5.8km environmental and active travel corridor linking the Cooks River at Earlwood with the Parramatta River at Iron Cove.

It mostly follows the route of the Inner West Light Rail and Hawthorne Canal and features bike paths and foreshore walks, cultural and historical sites, cafes, bushcare sites and a range of parks, playgrounds and sporting facilities.

The Greater Sydney Commission has identified the GreenWay as the number one priority Green Grid project in the Eastern Sydney District Plan released in March 2018.

After over 10 years of campaigning by the Inner West community and councils, $24 million in state and local government funding has now been secured to complete the southern section of the GreenWay from Parramatta Road through Lewisham West and Dulwich Hill to the Cooks River.

Design and construction of the new 3.2 km shared path is commencing in 2018 and is due for completion in 2021.

Missing links report

The missing links report was completed in October 2015.

It guided the future development of the GreenWay – prioritising and estimating costs for the remaining missing links – with a view to securing the necessary funding and approvals to complete the entire GreenWay trail by 2020.
