The Clarence Correctional Centre, located in Lavadia (approximately 12.5 kilometres southeast of Grafton), accommodates up to 1,700 inmates.
It features state of the art security and surveillance and focuses on rehabilitation to help reduce the rate of reoffending.
Benefits of the project include:
- about $560 million injected into the local economy over the next 20 years
- long-term, local economic opportunities through the procurement of a range of goods and services
- up to 1,100 construction jobs and 600 operational jobs created
- addressing the critical shortage of correctional centre beds and facilities within NSW.
The project was delivered by the NSW Government in partnership with the NorthernPathways consortium consisting of John Holland, Serco, John Laing and Macquarie Capital. The Clarence Correctional Centre officially opened on 25 July 2020.
