How will the RiverLink changes make things better for those of us living in Lower Hutt, besides flood protection?

RiverLink provides a unique opportunity to drive the transformation of the region's second largest city. This major infrastructure investment will be a catalyst for change, helping to foster urban renewal, new jobs, and homes. It’ll also make the river more accessible to more people.

Transformed city living

Living in a post RiverLink Lower Hutt you'll experience a neighbourhood where you can live within the inner city, shop, dine and access multiple services within a 15-minute walk. More people living in the inner city will be good for the High Street, encouraging new types of business, offering a wider choice of goods and services. Getting to work will be easy, you'll be able to walk, cycle, take a bus or train out of the city centre. You'll have access to leisure activities along the river trail, grab a coffee at a local café, enjoy multiple green spaces, the Saturday Riverbank Market, public art, and shop at locally owned and international branded stores.
