Lara Prison Precinct Expansion Project
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.
The new prison will:
- accommodate at least 700 prisoners
- play a key role in planning for increases in the prison population
- create more than 650 ongoing jobs
- support hundreds of indirect and direct jobs across the steel, manufacturing, construction, engineering and other sectors
- deliver an estimated economic benefit of $173 million to the Greater Geelong Region during the construction phase.
There is no minimum Local Content set for this Project as yet.
The Project is anticipated to commence in early 2019 with the facility expected to be operational in 2021.
