WHEN it opens in early 2020, the new Clarence Correctional Centre can hold up to 1700 inmates, and from the air it is becoming obvious how huge the complex will be at Lavadia, east of Grafton.

Member for Clarence Chris Gulaptis was taken on a tour with local media on Tuesday to see the build's progress, nearing 40% completion and ontime to be opened.
