Projects at Cessnock Correctional Complex
Upgrades at the Cessnock complex are being delivered in three stages:
- the innovative new Hunter Correctional Centre, providing maximum-security accommodation for 400 male inmates – completed in January 2018
- an expansion of the male maximum-security Shortland Correctional Centre, providing an additional 330 beds – completed in May 2019
- upgrades to Cessnock Correctional Centre, including a new 240-bed minimum-security facility for male inmates and a new gatehouse.
Most work takes place between 7am–6pm Monday to Friday and 8am–1pm on Saturdays. From time to time, work may need to continue later due to circumstances beyond our control. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Construction vehicles access the site via Kerlew Street, Nulkaba. Please take care when walking or driving near construction sites.
We work to minimise dust on site by spraying, covering or revegetating exposed soil; and covering all trucks carrying soil.
