Don’t Drop The Greenway, Says Ted

Ashfield Councillor Ted Cassidy has come out as a champion for the Greenway, urging the State Government not to forget the thousands of hours that have gone into the project already.

Councillor Cassidy has emphasised that the GreenWay is already a $1.8 million project, with support from all of the local Councils involved.

The Inner West Courier reported Councillor Cassidy’s comments this week (see page 11 of the digital edition for 25th March) or read it here.

Help support the GreenWay vision by using the resources on our Take Action page, and sending a letter or email to The Premier, or your local MP. Make sure you act before 30th April!

Make Sure The GreenWay is Not Forgotten!

The Transport Masterplan consulatation period closes on 30th April. Make sure your views on how the plan affects the GreenWay are heard! You can send an email or letter to The Premier, or to your local MP using our take action page.

You can also make a submission on the Masterplan website. There is a discussion forum running on identifying critical cycling links – let the Masterplanners know that the Greenway is one of these links!

Important News on the GreenWay

In early March the NSW State Government announced the Metropolitan Transport Plan, which proposes an immediate start on a light rail extension from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill.

This plan will build a light rail line through our inner west GreenWay.  In the haste to build a light rail extension,  the government seems to have overlooked our GreenWay Masterplan, which was many years in the making!

Marrickville MP Carmel Tebbutt has even circulated a letter that endorses light rail but fails to mention its connection with the GreenWay.

If you want the GreenWay to be realised we must act now!

Use our actions page to send a letter or email to:

We need to make it clear that planning for the GreenWay is well advanced and that the GreenWay plan must be implemented in conjunction with the light rail extension.

It is vital that we get as many emails and letters sent as possible to make it clear about the amount of community support for the GreenWay.
