The contract for Manila North Tollways Corporation (MNTC) requires Leighton to construct 5.6km of elevated highway in northwest Metro Manila.
The highway link, to be constructed over land reserved for the existing Philippine National Railways (PNR) rail line, includes the construction of foundations, substructure and superstructure of the elevated highway, together with surfacing and coordination of the construction of the traffic management systems. It also includes the construction of the toll buildings and associated infrastructure.
Ian Edwards, managing director of Leighton Asia, India and Offshore said: “We are delighted to win yet another landmark project with MNTC. Leighton’s track record for delivering large scale infrastructure in the Philippines includes the first NLEX section between 2003 and 2005 and Segment 8.1 in 2009. Repeating business with prestigious clients validates our reputation for consistently delivering quality projects.”
Construction will begin this month with completion scheduled for May 2016.
