Project Details

The new $653 million expansion of the Southern Queensland Correctional Precinct in Gatton project is due for completion in 2023.

The Southern Queensland Correctional Precinct (SQCC) is a two-stage expansion and upgrade project. Stage one has already been completed.

The Southern Queensland Correctional Precinct Stage Two is located at Millers Road, Spring Creek, about 12 kilometres north-east of Gatton and 100 kilometres south-west of Brisbane in the Lockyer Valley.

Stage Two involves the construction of a new 1,004-cell, high-security facility for male prisoners in Gatton, in order to address the growing demand for correctional facilities in Queensland over the next three to five years.

Corrective Services Minister Mark Ryan MP said that the new correctional centre will have up to 900 workers on-site during peak construction periods before it is commissioned in late 2023.

A highly contested infrastructure project in which DSD has had an early involvement.
