After more than 10 years campaigning by the community and GreenWay councils, completion of the GreenWay is a big step closer to reality with the release of the draft GreenWay Master Plan.
A multi-use linear corridor that spans 5.8km from Cooks River to Iron cove, the GreenWay sets out a unique, integrated, place-based approach which combines the four main functions of the GreenWay – active travel, ecology, recreation and culture – in each of the six precincts along the corridor.

沿着内西区轻轨的路线，GreenWay容纳了自行车道、滨海步道、文化历史景点、公共艺术区、社区活动空间、咖啡厅、灌木保护区以及一系列公园、游乐场和运动设施。本次草案还提出了一项令人期待的基建工程以及改进措施，包括恢复超过4公顷的植被及河岸，改善既有的公共开放空间、沿走廊置入公共艺术装置，以及完善剩余的3.2公里的步道和自行车道——它们将从Parramatta大街南端途径Lewisham West和Dulwich Hill，最终到达Earlwood的库克斯河自行车道。

Following the route of the Inner West Light Rail, the GreenWay features bike paths and foreshore walks, cultural and historical sites, public art, community events, cafes, bushcare sites and a range of parks, playgrounds and sporting facilities.
The draft plan proposes an exciting combination of capital works and other improvements, including more than 4 ha of revegetation and bank naturalisation, improvements to existing and newly accessible public open space, public art installations along the length of the corridor and the completion of the remaining 3.2 km of GreenWay walking and cycle path from Parramatta Road south through Lewisham West and Dulwich Hill to the Cooks River cycleway at Earlwood.

该方案计划斥资5700万美元进行分期工程，其中来自州政府和当地政府的约2500万美元资金已计划被用于首期工程，并将于2022年完工。此外，位于Parramatta大街和Old Canterbury大街之间的“空缺环节”预计将于2019年开建。而位于Old Canterbury大街和库克斯河之间的“南部环节”将于2020年动工。随着更多资金的注入，草案中列出的其它工程也将在未来的10至15年内逐步开始实施。走廊的大部分采用了连续的共享道路，其中包括新建于Parramatta大街下方的轻量人行道及自行车桥，以及位于繁忙的Longport大街下方的隧道。
The draft plan advocates $57 million of staged works, with around $25 million in state and local government funding already committed to priority works due for completion by 2022.
Construction of the “central missing links”, from Parramatta Road to Old Canterbury Road, is expected to commence in 2019. It is anticipated that construction of the “southern missing links”, from Old Canterbury Road to the Cooks River, will commence in 2020. It is anticipated that additional works outlined in the draft Plan will be delivered in a staged approach over the next 10 to 15 years, as more funding becomes available. A continuous shared path is proposed along most of the corridor, including a new light weight pedestrian and cycle bridge under Parramatta Road and a tunnel under busy Longport Street.
In line with the Government Architect office NSW vision for a Green Grid network throughout the Sydney Metropolitan area, the Greater Sydney Commission has identified the GreenWay as the number one priority Green Grid project in the Eastern City District Plan (released on 18 March).
The priority status for the GreenWay reflects its location in a densely populated and increasingly urbanised inner city region.
