Have You Got Yours?

The GreenWay Survey is being delivered to 18,000 households in the GreenWay catchment. If you haven’t received your copy of the leaflet with attached survey, you can still take part! You can complete the survey online at surveymonkey.

If you complete the survey either online or by mailing the survey back to Ashfield Council before 25th June, you will be entered into the prize draw.

Bush Care Working Bee on 20th June

Our friends at IWEG have organised a working bee at the Waratah Mills bush care site for Sunday 20th June.

Volunteers have already created several bush pockets along the GreenWay, but the resident bandicoots and other native species need more of the support that these sites provide.

Find out how to join the next working bee by visiting the GreenWay events calendar.

Comments to Light Rail Extension Study Close 7 June

Would you like to see the GreenWay fully built the year after next?

Things are happening at an ever increasing rate with the GreenWay and the light rail extension. Our hard work is paying off and the construction team for the light rail is now examining how to integrate the GreenWay into the light rail construction process. We now need to continue the pressure to ensure that the commitments given so far are translated into construction of the GreenWay.

NSW Transport and Infrastructure has released the draft Light Rail Extension Study for public comment. A link to the study and an e-mail address for comments can be found here. Due to the speed of the light rail construction process, submissions close on 7 June.

We need as many comments as possible calling for the construction of the GreenWay. Please let them know what aspects of the GreenWay (cycle paths, bushcare sites, walking paths, cultural sites – whatever) appeal to you most. You can refer to the integrated concept plan for more information.

With your help we can ensure that the final report that details the scope of work for the light rail construction project includes construction of the GreenWay. If that happens, we all will be able to start enjoying the benefits of the GreenWay in the near future.

The Inner West Courier ran a story “Have Your Say On The GreenWay” and also mentioning The Friends’ meeting with the Light Rail Steering Committee – you can read the story here.
