Recently, a contract worth USD 381 million was won by construction company Leighton Holdings Limited at the Khalifa Port and Industrial Zone in Abu Dhabi.
The work would be carried out by Leighton subsidiary Al Habtoor Leighton Group for the Abu Dhabi Ports Company that includes the construction of the on-shore port facilities which involves the construction of 47 buildings and associated infrastructure works.
Via a statement, Leighton said that already the work has commenced, which is expected to be completed by September 2011.
Abu Dhabi will keep offering strong new work prospects, particularly in large-scale infrastructure and will most probably be the group's most important market for the foreseeable future, expressed Mr. David Savage MD of the Al Habtoor Leighton Group.
This has also come as the largest contract this year for Al Habtoor Leighton. It should be noted that Leighton was a part of a consortium that pulled out of a major deal to build a third concourse at Dubai International Airport in April.
