Greenway Cooks to Cove Sod Turning
Gartner Rose had the pleasure of hosting a Sod Turning Ceremony to mark the official launch of construction for the works on the Greenway Cooks to Cove project.
The ceremony took place in Johnson Park, Dulwich Hill, where works have begun to build the tunnel that will run under Constitution Road from Johnson Park and join the light rail corridor.
Guests in attendance included Inner West Mayor, Darcy Byrne, Minister for Transport and Member for Summer Hill, Jo Haylen, and Planning Minister, Paul Scully.
The Minister for Transport spoke highly of the project, saying:
“This project has been a long time coming and follows years of campaigning from locals, including the Friends of the Greenway group, Prime Minister Albanese and Linda Burney. The inner west is already one of the best places to walk and cycle, and this provides the missing link between some of Sydney’s most beautiful public spaces. I can’t wait for this project to be completed and look forward to seeing it connect to other walkways and cycleways as this government delivers more funding for active transport projects across the inner west and NSW.”
This is an exciting milestone for Gartner Rose and we look forward to our continued collaboration with Inner West Council, Transport for NSW and the NSW Department of Planning and Environment to deliver the Greenway Cooks to Cove project safely and successfully.
