The Australian New South Wales Government has selected NorthernPathways consortium for the development of the new Grafton Correctional Centre PPP project.
NorthernPathways is a consortium of four companies which are local and international leaders in their fields:
The project, which will be located about 12.5 kilometres south-east of Grafton, will be made up of individual facilities which will hold three different categories of inmates safely, securely and entirely separately. It will include a 1000-bed male maximum security facility; a 300-bed female maximum security facility; and a 400-bed male minimum security facility. Both the centre itself, and the programs that inmates will participate in, are designed with the goal of reducing reoffending and making our communities safer.
Construction is due to commence in mid-2017 and the new Centre will open in 2020.
