Briefing at the Melling link

Melling link gets big tick

A new bridge and interchange on State Highway 2 in Lower Hutt are both a step closer after getting a big tick from Transport Minister Phil Twyford.

Minister Twyford received an on-site briefing on Monday on Lower Hutt’s RiverLink project, which includes upgraded flood protection, a new Melling bridge, a river promenade and a footbridge linking a new Melling Station with the central city. The project’s budget is approximately $225 million, but a large part – the possible new Melling interchange – has not yet been costed.
