RiverLink will turn Lower Hutt into a true river city, putting our taonga - Te Awa Kairangi Hutt River - at the heart of our community. Developing in harmony with our environment will help us to build a strong and vibrant, progressive city.
Beyond flood protection and transport upgrades, RiverLink will stimulate urban and economic growth.
RiverLink aims to make Lower Hutt more connected, with improvements to the road and rail infrastructure, as well as new cycleways and pathways.
Construction is expected to begin in 2023 and be completed in 2027. The transport improvements will include a new Melling interchange, newly relocated Melling station, and better walking and cycling links.
