Cimic Group company Leighton Contractors (Asia) Limited, in joint venture with Chun Wo Building Construction Limited, has been awarded an A$205 million (HK$ 1.15 billion) contract for ancillaries building works for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities project.
The 60:40 Leighton Asia-led joint venture project is expected to generate revenue to Cimic of approximately A$123 million. The works form part of the Hong Kong government’s boundary crossing facilities project, for which the Leighton Asia-Chun Wo joint venture is already constructing the A$1.48 billion (HK$ 8.3 billion) passenger clearance building.
Cimic Group Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Marcelino Fernández Verdes said: “We are delighted to have a greater role in this key infrastructure project for the Hong Kong government. Hong Kong is a growing market with a considerable number of building and integrated transport infrastructure projects planned for the future. We are honoured to be able to undertake further work for this client.”
Leighton Asia Managing Director Manuel Alvarez Munoz said: “This contract award is an excellent achievement for Leighton Asia. The boundary crossing facilities will connect Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao and bring significant economic benefits to the region.”
The scope of works includes the construction of 14 buildings, associated services, earthworks and landscaping, as well as the procurement, testing and commissioning of a mobile X-ray vehicle scanning system and baggage inspection system.
The ancillaries building works were commenced on 31 December 2015, with completion targeted for November 2017.
