Why move Melling Station south instead of extending the rail line further north?

Melling Station needs to move to create space for the new interchange. The newly relocated station will be closer to central Lower Hutt and connect to the central city via a new walking and cycling bridge (delivered by Hutt City Council as another part of RiverLink).

There are currently no plans to extend the rail line further north. However, the new Melling interchange has been designed to accommodate a rail line if the train line is extended in the future.
