Lend Lease Group has received a A$315m ($316.6m) contract from Interlink Roads to design, construct and widen the M5 south-west motorway in Sydney, Australia.
The M5 widening project will upgrade the existing motorway from two lanes to three in each direction, from Camden Valley Way, Prestons, to King Georges Road, Beverly Hills.
Lend Lease Group chief executive officer and managing director Steve McCann said the Group is working with Interlink Roads on the significant M5 West motorway project.
"Lend Lease, through Abigroup, has a strong track record of delivering road projects in the Sydney area, including the Westlink M7 and Hills M2 Motorways, and this latest award confirms the experience and track record of our business in the road sector," McCann added.
Abigroup, an Australia-based company that focuses on building, roads, rail, water, mining services, tunnels, bridges, telco and energy, will design and construct the motorway widening project, as well as carry out the upgrade programme in phases.
The M5 motorway will be open to traffic during the construction period, while completion of the upgrade programme is expected in December 2014.
Abigroup, a part of Lend Lease Group, joined forces with Interlink Roads in 2010 through an early contractor involvement contract.
