The RiverLink project team is seeking public feedback on three options for a new interchange at the SH2/Melling intersection and a new river bridge.

The transport improvements are important to the success of the overall RiverLink project which aims to improve flood protection, improve the flow and efficiency of traffic and contribute to the revitalisation and economic growth of Lower Hutt’s city centre.

“RiverLink is one of the most ambitious transformation projects ever undertaken in Lower Hutt – a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to greatly strengthen the protection of the lives, property and businesses from flooding,” Lower Hutt Mayor Ray Wallace says.

Great,
The Lower Hutt council are doing their best to wreck it already, with even more bridge options



This shows a vehicle bridge at Margaret street, which NZTA proposed as a pedestrian bridge.

So the council are saying it should connect to SH2, I mean what planet are they on, there is not need for 3 bridges into the lower Hutt CBD, ( existing Railway Ave bridge, Melling replacement + this)

NZTA might let them have this as a Melling replacement, but it would funnel all the traffic off SH2 through the CBD..... nuts!!!

The picture you are looking at is from 2009 and not current.
