​Metropolitan Remand and Reception Centre (MRRC) 


The NSW Government has approved Corrective Services NSW to proceed with the planning and design of an additional 440 beds at the Metropolitan Remand and Reception Centre (MRRC) at the Silverwater Correctional Complex.

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