Prisoners dueto start arriving in 2020

From page 1 of the whole project workforceunder the age of 25.”Mr Cassell said construction was on schedule.“The site has changed dramatically since early works started in July last year and we’re making progress everyday,” he said.“Lifting precast concrete panels and cells into place is our current focus and is a delicate task. The cells weigh up to 80 tonnes each and are lifted carefully into place with 280 tonne cranes.”Mr Gulaptis said the new jail would play a critical role in addressing the shortage of correctional centre beds and facilities within NSW, and will provide an additional 1700 prison beds for NSW. He said the project should create 1100 jobs during construction and up to 600 operational jobs once open. Major construction of the new prison began in February this year and the prison was on track to be open in mid 2020. The project is being delivered by the NSW Government in partnership with the Northern Pathways consortium. Mr Cramb said the consortium member which would ad-minister the prison, Serco, was already recruiting staff for the jail.He said discussions with NSW Corrective Services were also underway to plan filling the prison once it was commissioned.“Basically the model will be 100 a month until the prison reaches its capacity,” he said.He said the 1700-bed jail would house 1000 maximum security, 400 minimum security and 300 women inmates.

New boutique with ‘country coastal’ feel

A MOVE back to Grafton had Susan Wratten go from working on cattle stations to opening her own clothing boutique on Prince St. Mrs Wratten said the idea of opening SASS Boutique was always “ticking over” in the back of her mind but a visit to Melbourne to complete a styling course a couple of years ago ignited her passion and led her to finally open the business in September. Previously , she was living and working on a cattle station as a home stead manager, where she managed staff and looked after resort accommodation. But the move to Grafton meant she would be closer to her family . “Coming back and going in- to this boutique is something different but very exciting to do,” she said. When planning the store Ms Wratten wanted it to be a one stop-shop where ladies could get a dress, hat, shoes and lip- stick all in one go. “My store has a country, coastal feel with lovely cool cottons as well as something for that special occasion. My aim is to provide fresh, current fashion at an affordable price,” she said. She got to experience her first Jacaranda Festival as a business owner on Prince Street. “I was really please d to be open for the festival,” she said
