Australian-listed construction group Leighton Holdings will undertake a restructuring that is expected to include asset sales. The John Holland construction business is one of the assets that could be sold, with expectations that it could fetch around $A1bn. Leighton’s services businesses could also be offloaded, while the future of its property assets are also believed to be under scrutiny. Leighton currently has five operating businesses, but these will be reduced to four as part of the restructure
