CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.
Come and check out the progress on plans to connect the Lower Hutt CBD with the Te Awa Kairangi / Hutt River at the RiverLink Pop-up Hub at the Riverside Carpark in March and April.
“We have opened up space between the trees next to the river and tidied the river bank which will give people better access to the water”, says Prue Lamason GWRC Lower Hutt Ward Councillor.
Together with Hutt City Council we have set up a container and had it painted by a local Lower Hutt artist to portray the giant kokopu fish, another Te Awa Kairangi/Hutt River local.
There are a series of posters inside the container showcasing RiverLink designs to provide better flood protection, transport and lifestyle for Lower Hutt, and we will change these as the designs progress.
We’ve talked to thousands of people over the past few years to get ideas to develop plans for stopbanks, promenades, a cycleway, riverside features and connecting paths to the CBD.
We’re about two thirds through the design and we’d love people to keep coming back to the pop-up hub and check out the progress.
The pop-up hub will play host to a series of community events by the river, from live music to coffee and food, in early March and early April.
