A big cheer went up from the public gallery at the Inner West Council meeting on 14 August after the councillors unanimously adopted the new Cooks to Cove GreenWay Master Plan.
This exciting and innovative plan sets out an ambitious program of proposed works over the next 10 to 15 years, starting with a $25 million state and local government funded commitment to complete the southern section of the GreenWay from Parramatta Road through Lewisham West and Dulwich Hill, to the Cooks River cycleway at Earlwood. It is anticipated that this new section of GreenWay will be completed by 2022.
“Our GreenWay will be a world-class pedestrian, cycling and biodiversity corridor,”
Inner West Mayor Cllr Darcy Byrne said.
“For more than 20 years the community has been advocating for a GreenWay to be created and I am delighted Council is finally going to make it happen”.
“I want to thank the many activists, community members and community groups who played such an important role in advocating for this project over a very long period of time."
