A major upgrade is now officially underway at the Junee Correctional Centre, adding 480 maximum security beds, part of the state-government’s overall $3.8 Billion program to increase the capacity of the NSW prison system.

The expansion at Junee will also include refurbishments and extensions to existing buildings including the gatehouse, health centre, reception, administrations, stores, kitchens, laundry and industries building.

It’s set to create 130 new jobs, as well as 300 during the construction phase, promising an economic boost for the town.
