What’s the benefit of doing this (RiverLink)? I get flood protection and better transport routes but what about the rest?

RiverLink will future-proof Lower Hutt, enabling it to mature and modernise. Efficiencies and ease of transport will make it easier for people to come in and out of the city, encouraging them to stay, socialise, live and work – making it great for business. 

The east-west connections to the river will make Te Awa Kairangi ǀ Hutt River feel more integrated and part of the city. It’ll help us meet our commitments around climate change, sustainability, and flood protection.
