Creating a river city
Te Awa Kairangi project will help us to build an innovative, prosperous and attractive city.
It will turn Te Awa Kairangi ki Tai - Lower Hutt to face Te Awa Kairangi / Hutt River, connecting the river and city, creating a distinctive character and more vibrant central city.
As well as improving flood protection, Te Awa Kairangi project will develop better transport connections in central Te Awa Kairangi ki Tai - Lower Hutt and create a new riverside area. Plans include improved walking, cycling, and public transport options which will bring development without increasing congestion and greenhouse gas emissions.
