The Government is delivering new and upgraded court buildings for Victoria, with $272 million to build new law courts in Wyndham.
The new precinct will include a new headquarter court with 13 courtrooms, four hearing rooms, three mediation suites, and a dedicated Specialist Family Violence Court. The build will also support more Victorians back into work, creating around 400 local jobs.
The Victorians Budget 2020/21 delivers major investments in new courts and court systems – to provide a strong, efficient, cutting-edge justice system that allows matters to be heard remotely and safely.
Attorney-General Jill Hennessy said, “Like all of us, our courts have had to adapt this year – this investment will help them keep evolving and delivering the justice Victorians deserve.”
“Not only will this ensure the safety of our courts in the short-term, it’ll create a stronger, faster and more flexible justice system on the other side of this pandemic.”
