This $288 million youth justice facility is part of comprehensive changes to the youth justice system in Victoria to make it more secure and to provide greater protections for staff, young people in contact with the system, and the wider community. The project will still be delivered within the existing timeframes and budget.
It will be of significant boost to locals and the local economy, generating more than 2000 jobs during construction and providing 450 ongoing employment opportunities.
