Chisholm Road Prison

Improving community safety and reducing recidivism is top of mind for John Holland’s Building Business as we deliver Victoria’s Chisholm Road Prison project.

The maximum-security prison will accommodate 1,248 prisoners in the vicinity of the Lara prison precinct and provide much-needed capacity for Victoria’s growing prison population.

With a focus on community safety, the state-of-the-art facility will feature the highest and most stringent level of security.

Key features include new health, education and recreation facilities.

During construction, the project will create more than 900 jobs and create an estimated $173 million in economic benefit to the Greater Geelong Region.

John Holland has a strong track record in delivering high-quality, safe and functional correctional centres like Victoria’s award-winning Ravenhall Correctional Centre.
