Chisholm Road Prison, VIC
TRAVEL8 Static Line Systems
The project is expected to be completed in 2022. Once complete, the facility will deliver a 1,248-bed maximum security prison and comprise eight prisoner communities, each with two 78-bed accommodation units. The Corrections Minister Ben Carroll said, “We’re investing in the prison infrastructure we need to keep our community safe – Chisholm Road will not only add extra beds to the system, but it will also include the full range of services needed to support rehabilitation.”
The Victorian Government is building a new maximum security prison in the vicinity of the existing prison precinct which includes Barwon Prison and Marngoneet Correctional Centre.
Providing a new maximum security facility is an essential part of the government’s commitment to improving community safety.
Building within the existing prison precinct has been identified as a good option due to existing infrastructure such as road and public transport links and the proximity to local courts.
With significant recent population growth, the Western Victoria region is a location capable of providing for a workforce to build and service the new prison facility.
IN PROGRESS - DUE FOR COMPLETION 2022. Stay tuned for more details.
