What issues does RiverLink deal with?

RiverLink addresses three main areas:

  • Flooding. New stopbanks and a wider river channel will add new layers of flood protection.
  • Urban revitalisation. Turning Lower Hutt into a true ‘river city’ aims to stimulate redevelopment and identify new opportunities for recreational, social and cultural activities.
  • Transport. Developing safe and reliable transport connections and offering more transport choice.
