The Victorian Government is building a new maximum security prison at Chisholm Road, Lara. It is next to the existing prison precinct which includes Barwon Prison and Marngoneet Correctional Centre.

The Chisholm Road Prison Project is a part of the government's commitment to improve community safety, and ensure the prison system is safe, secure and well-equipped to meet demand.

The Victorian Government is committed to keeping the community informed about the construction of this new prison.

Construction of the new prison at Chisholm Road is currently underway.

A Community Advisory Group (CAG) is helping to guide the development of the new prison and keep the local community informed and engaged as the project progresses.
