Grafton, NSW, 21 August 2017: Northern Pathways is pleased to announce that initial works for the new Grafton Correctional Centre have begun.Representatives from the consortium joined with the NSW Deputy Premier, John Barilaro, Minister for Corrections, David Elliott, Minister for Planning, Anthony Roberts and Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis, and members of the Northern Rivers community to turn the first sod in readiness for the new facility.Northern Pathways is a consortium of three companies which are local and international leaders in their fields:
The state-of-the art, modern correctional centre will be the primary correctional complex for all corrections operations from the Queensland border in the north, Kempsey in the southeast and Tamworth in the southwest. It will deliver $560m in economic benefits to the region over the next 20 years and generate 1100 jobs in construction and up to 600 during operation.The NGCC 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. It will be the largest correctional facility in Australia when complete.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.Chief Executive Officer of John Holland, Joe Barr, said the company had industry leading experience in the construction of correctional facilities, including currently delivering the 1000-bed Ravenhall Prison in Melbourne.“We look forward to working with the local community on this significant project. We will have training programs in place to recruit and train local people, so they can get employment not only in the construction phase, but inoperations as well,” he said.Chris Cox, John Laing group’s Northern Pathways representative said: “This is a great opportunity for the private sector to contribute to the modernisation of the NSW Correctional infrastructure and take an active role in reducing of re-offending.”Serco Australia CEO Mark Irwin said the prison’s design, build and operate model ensured a high level of safety and security but allowed the introduction of significant education and vocational training programs which helped build life skills and prepare inmates for life on release.“We work with our community and industry partners to develop these skills and give inmates the best chance at becoming responsible citizens again. Today is the first step to us making a positive difference through our work at the New Grafton Correctional Centre.”Contacts:Serco: Tim Evans: +61 409 389 358John Holland: Nicola Mitchell: M. +61 402 398 545John Laing: Chris Cox: + 61 424 365 098
