Victorian Prison To Double In Size

A maximum security prison precinct west of Melbourne will double in size with the Victorian government planning to buy more land for the site.

The Andrews government announced on Thursday plans to buy more land at Lara, near Geelong to expand the size of the prisons located there.

"We are currently in negotiations with land owners to buy more land to expand the size of the prison complex," Corrections Minister Gayle Tierney told reporters.
