No student concessions on the Light Rail : Sign the petition

There will be no student concessions on the Inner West Light Rail extension. - only UTS students and Sydney TAFE students will receive concessions. There are 23 primary schools as well as several regional high schools and colleges in the light rail corridor. All these students will have to pay to travel. The Greens have started a petition to secure concessions for our kids. Please sign and share with your friends. 

State Government shelves cycle routes

The release of the Sydney's Cycling Future document has revealled the Government's current position on cycling. Many high profile projects including the GreenWay have been psotponed to the medium and long term. This is very disappointing, particular considering the developement occuring adjacent to the light rail- Greenway corridor. We look forward to working with the state government to expedite these essential infrastructure projects.

The GreenWay has strong support from the 4 local councils as well as the local community and we will be launching a "Missing Links" project in the New Year to seek funding to build critical sections of the GreenWay. 

Tell the Government you want the Greenway!

The NSW Government 'deferred' the GreenWay shared path in 2012 to ensure that the light rail extension was not delayed by its construction. The light rail extension is due to be opened on schedule in March 2014. With several large residential developments planned or under constuction in the corridor the need for the GreenWay shared path to facilitate active transport is even more urgent. Please consider writing to the Premier and the Minister for Transport in support of the GreenWay. The proforma letters can be emailed or posted directly to them.

GREENWAY MAP

Welcome to the GreenWay website!

 The GreenWay is an urban green corridor in Sydney's Inner West. It is a bush corridor and a hub for community arts and groups, bushcare, walking and cycling. The GreenWay Community is maintaining a campaign to build an off-road shared path from the Cooks River to Iron Cove.  This trail was to be built as part of the Inner West Light Rail Extension but was deferred by the state government. As an interim measure we have marked out an alternative route to help people travel along the corridor.  

This website is a portal to all GreenWay related activities in the catchment. Get involved in the site - register and add community events, send us resource materials, and add comments.  With your feedback we will continue to improve and evolve this site - let us know what you think!
