Welcome light rail opening should give green light to GreenWay

THE opening of the inner-west light rail extension presented a golden opportunity to begin work on a long-awaited walking and cycling route alongside the tram corridor, the Friends of the GreenWay group said today.

The NSW Government today opened the light rail line extension from Lilyfield to Dulwich Hill.

The government scrapped previously approved plans for a 5km GreenWay alongside the light rail extension, arguing that it could delay the light rail project.

Friends of the GreenWay spokesperson Jennifer Kent said that the welcome opening of the light rail line would now help everyone focus on the best way to deliver a GreenWay.
