Contractor won project contract after it submitted the lowest bid of $19.5m for the project, which will link Jebal Ali port and its surrounding industrial areas together
Saudi Binladin Group (SBLG) has won a contract from Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) for rehabilitation works on the Jebel Ali-Lehbab road.
The highway is a vital part of the emirate’s road network, as it takes traffic from Jebel Ali port and the surrounding industrial areas out of Dubai and onto roads connecting to other parts of Dubai and other emirates.
SBLG was the lowest bidder for the contract last December when it submitted a price of $19.5m, which was about 17% lower than the local Darwish Engineering’s bid, according to Meed.
The consultant for the contract is the US-based, Aecom.
