Cimic Group company, Leighton Asia, has been selected by Nlex Corporation to construct the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) Harbour Link Segment 10 in the Philippines.

Revenue to Leighton Asia for the contract will be approximately US$102 million.

Construction works include a 2.6km dual, elevated tollway to link the existing NLEX Segment 10 Road to the R10 Road and provide a continuation of Harbour Link, as well as various ramps, roadworks, electrical and mechanical works and landscaping.

Cimic Group CEO Michael Wright said, “Leighton Asia has been involved in the ongoing development of the NLEX infrastructure project since the first phase of construction in 1998.

“The award of this further work reflects our productive and enduring relationship with both Metro Pacific Tollways Corporation (MPTC) and its subsidiary, Nlex Corporation, and is a testament to the high-quality transport infrastructure solutions we provide.”

Advanced works have commenced, and the project is scheduled to be completed in late 2019.
