Despite the government’s ongoing refusal to build the GreenWay, it seems the passion and support we’re receiving is going from strength to strength. People swarmed to our Marrickville Festival stand on Sunday, October 21, with people signing 270 form letters to the Transport Minister and another 48 people writing their own letters to the Premier.
Most people needed very little, or no, prodding to sign the letter and were very keen to approach the stall and talk about the GreenWay. The fact is that inner-westies and other Sydneysiders ‘get’ the GreenWay concept and just don’t understand why it isn’t being built.
Thanks to our volunteers Mark, Julia, Martina, Annabella, Jo, Karen, Lisa, Monica, Joanna and Graeme – they helped keep the stand going during a busy and hot day.
We released a new brochure on the day. We’re also released a new media release to the local papers which reported the GreenWay Sustainability Project’s survey which found that 92% of locals would use regularly use the GreenWay and 86% of people are concerned by its deferral.
In other GreenWay news, it’s good news that way-finding signs have been placed through the corridor. While it would be preferable to build a predominantly off-road cycling and walking track alongside the light rail line, the signs will help people move through the corridor on both on and off-road paths.
