Prison Expansion Program

In the past year, the NSW Government has announced the biggest ever expansion of infrastructure for the state's prison system, to occur over the next four years. This is in response to the increase in the state's prison population, which is expected to continue. 

The new facilities will enable New South Wales to accommodate this rise appropriately, thereby ensuring community safety and the best opportunity to reduce reoffending by providing programs and other rehabilitative activities.

In April 2017, the Northern Pathways consortium​ including prison operator Serco, has been announced by the NSW government as the preferred bidder to deliver and operate the new 1,700-bed correctional centre in Grafton. For more information: Grafton Correctional Centre
