Saudi Binladen Group has won a US $34.5 million (SAR 129 million) roadworks contract from Emaar's Economic City (EC) as part of the King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) development in Saudi Arabia.

The project, which will be complete in seven months, covers the construction of a 13km-road from the KAEC main gate to the Bay La Sun Village, a residential community overlooking the Red Sea.

"Emaar, The Economic City is committed to providing strong infrastructure support for KAEC including the laying of an excellent road network," said Dr Abdulraouf Mannaa, managing director, Emaar EC.

"Saudi Binladen Group is one of the major contractors involved in the construction of KAEC, and this contract reiterates our operat-ional philosophy of partnering with local and leading companies."

The stretch of road that leads to the Red Sea will be supported by electricity and other ancillary services.

The road will also connect the various amenities at Bay La Sun Village, such as leisure and retail outlets, mosques, medical centres and community areas.

"KAEC is one of the largest private sector developments in the region, and undertaking contracts for the project is a privilege that provides us with the opportunity to showcase our world-class construction expertise," said Omar Binladen, chief executive officer, Saudi Binladen Group.

"We have a track-record of accomplishing several prestigious projects in Saudi Arabia, and have special expertise in undertaking infrastructure work, which we will employ at KAEC too."

Saudi Binladen also picked up the construction package for the project's first residential apartments earlier this year.

Other contractors so far involved in the project include Al Saad General Contracting, which earlier this month won a $28 million contract for the construction of a management and services complex, Saudi Oger and the International Centre for Commerce and Contracting.
