Deal: WestConnex Delivery Authority awarded a design and construction contract for the M4 East Motorway to Leighton Contractors, Samsung and John Holland.

Value: $2.7 billion

Key players: The Allens team was led by partner Leighton O'Brien (pictured) with assistance from senior associates Tracey Davern and Michael Zissis.

Deal significance:

WestConnex is Australia’s biggest urban road project, with a total value of about $15 billion. It is to be delivered in three stages over 10 years. The M4 East Motorway is expected to open to traffic in 2019.

The M4 East Motorway is part of the first stage of the WestConnex project, which is a 33-kilometre project that will complete Sydney's Orbital Road Network. The M4 East will build on the work now being done to widen the M4 Motorway.
