An East West wake-up call for Leighton

The Victorian government’s dumping of Leighton’s East West Link bid reveals that, unlike Lend Lease, the company has a lot more work to do on meeting the new tender rules.

The dumping of the John Holland-Leighton bid for Victoria’s $8 billion East West Link should be a wake-up call for the Spanish-controlled construction giant. The East West Link was the first big tender conducted under the new code of conduct for government tenders, albeit the Victorian version of the code. (The Victorian code is a mirror image of the proposed Commonwealth code, which has yet to pass the parliament, but is almost certain to be enacted by the Senate after July 1.)
