The $153 million project was part of NSW Government’s $3.8 billion Better and Safer Prisons program which addresses overcrowding and provides expanded access to rehabilitative and other educational programs to help reduce recidivism. More beds in the Sydney metropolitan area allows inmates to be closer to Sydney courts, cutting travel times.

The project included increasing the total size of the site from seven-hectares to 10 hectares. The new facilities include a visitor processing building; a health, reception and industries building; a programs and inmate services building; an education building; a segregation building; five accommodation buildings, a carpark and recreation areas.
