The NSW Government has approved Corrective Services NSW to proceed with the planning and design of an additional 248 beds at the Dillwynia Correctional Centre at the John Morony Correctional Complex in Berkshire Park, northwest of Sydney.

The proposed additional beds are part of the $3.8 billion Prison Bed Capacity Program and will provide additional secure capacity for female inmates in the Sydney metropolitan area where additional maximum- security beds are most required.

This expansion will deliver a fit-for-purpose facility for more holistic end-to-end management of inmates, as well as providing a safer environment for correctional staff.
