Leighton Contractors, an umbrella for the group’s Asia, India and offshore work, has won a $683m contract from Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway (MTR) Corporation for work on a critical rail link.

Leighton’s contract covers the construction of a section of line from Shatin to Central Link (SCL), and is the seventh contract secured by Leighton Asia from the MTR Corporation in the past three years.

The SCL development is a major transport initiative in Hong Kong that will connect several existing railway lines to form two strategic rail corridors.

Work on the project is set to commence immediately and is expected to be completed in 2018.
