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. A campaign is underway to see the GreenWay shared pathway completed as part of the light rail extension from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill.

A recent Danish study has revealled that children who walk or cycle to school have have far improved concentration levels at school than children who take the bus or a car! The Danish researchers were originally intending to measure the impacts of missing breakfast and lunch on concentration levels, but found that the biggest influence on concentration levels for the first 4 hours of the day was whether the child had walked or cycled to school! 20,000 students aged 5-19 took part in the study.
With 23 primary schools in the GreenWay catchment this is another good reason to build the GreenWay shared path!

Many people have commented on the clearing of vegetation in the GreenWay (rail) corridor for platforms and other structures associated with the light rail extension. Although much of this vegetation is not native it still provides valuable habitat for small birds, reptiles, insects and occasionally bandicoots. Under condition B18 of the approval for the Inner West Light Rail extension there needs to be a Revegetation and Light Rail Compensation Package as part of the development.
The disused rail tracks bounding the western edge of Jack Shanahan Reserve in Dulwich Hill were removed in November. The GreenWay Program and the Friends of the GreenWay are investigating how to access this land so that it could be used for a shared path and native planting.
