The Government will provide $80.1 million over three years from 2016‑17 in capital funding to enhance the immigration detention network.

The changes to the network will include:

  • improving security at the Yongah Hill and Villawood Immigration Detention Centres and Melbourne Immigration Transit Accommodation (ITA); and
  • building accommodation adjacent to the Melbourne ITA for families of detainees, to enable them to have regular contact with the detainee.

This measure builds on the 2015‑16 MYEFO measure titled Management of the Onshore Immigration Detention Network.
