Middleton Prison to expand

Work is set to start on a major construction project in Castlemaine, with the state government signing a $37.6 million contract to expand the capacity of Middleton Prison by 39 beds. 
The project is expected to create 165 jobs during construction, including around 50 in the Central Victorian region and generate opportunities for a range of local contractors.  See the Mail for the full story.
