Creating a river city
RiverLink will help us to build an innovative, prosperous and attractive city.
It will turn Lower Hutt to face Te Awa Kairangi Hutt River, connecting the river and city, creating a distinctive character and more vibrant central city.
As well as improving flood protection, RiverLink will develop better transport connections in central Lower Hutt and create a new riverside area. Plans include improved walking, cycling, and public transport options which will bring development without increasing congestion and greenhouse gas emissions.
