SINGAPORE - A unit of mainboard-listed infrastructure and civil engineering firm OKP Holdings has won a JTC contract worth S$11.7 million.

Its unit, Eng Lam Contractors, won a 10-month contract to build new roads and drains in North Coast Avenue and to work on junction improvements at Attap Valley Road.

The contract brings the group's total construction order book to S$317.8 million.

"We are delighted to have this opportunity to work with JTC on yet another project. We believe our fine credentials and track record in civil engineering projects has stood us in good stead," said group managing director Or Toh Wat. "We will continue to work hard to secure some of the contracts based on BCA's projected demand this year, especially public sector projects in which we have a strong track record."

In July 2016, Eng Lam was awarded a 15-month contract ending Oct 4, this year, to construct new roads, drains, cycling paths, culverts, sumps, sewer pipes and manholes, and underground basement linkways at Punggol Road.

The Group's net construction order book remains robust, with S$317.8 million of secured contracts extending till 2019.
