Singleton court matters are all being redirected to Muswellbrook while there are some upgrade works happening at Singleton Court House.
The upgrade work includes the installation of a new Audio Visual Link as well as new digital recording equipment - the upgrade work will reduce the need for prisoners to be brought to the courthouse, it enables defendants in custody to appear before court via a video link from prisons and also allows evidence to be heard from witnesses who may not be able to physically attend court.
From this week Singleton court matters are all being redirected to Muswellbrook Court House until the installation is complete.
It is expected to take several months to complete.
