UK-based infrastructure group Balfour Beatty has said it expects to end its financial year holding an order book worth £13 billion (€15.6 billion).

In an interim statement ahead of its results for the year ended 31 December 2013, which will be announced on 6 March 2014, the contractor said the order book forecast was in line with last year's levels.

Since the end of the third quarter, Balfour Beatty said it had signed a number of significant contract wins, including a £154 million (€185 million) Olympic Park transformation contract, a £209 million (€250 million) Denver North Metro Rail Line design-build contract, a £121 million (€145 million) Ministry of Defence joint venture contract and £148 million (€178 million) of rail contracts in Singapore through the group’s Gammon joint venture in Hong Kong.
