PETALING JAYA (Aug 12): IJM Construction Sdn Bhd , a wholly owned subsidiary of IJM Corp Bhd, has secured a RM258 million contract for the East Coast Rail Link (ECRL) project located in Temerloh, Pahang.

The scope of work under the contract includes the construction of substructure works and partial superstructure works for the Sungai Pahang bridge, as well as T-Beam fabrication and installation of this bridge as well as other bridges in Section 6 of the rail link.

Construction work on the project is scheduled to start at the end of this month and is due for completion in 24 months from the commencement date.
