Hasn’t Metrolinx moved to a partnership model for transit work, where they take some of the planning risk up front along with the private sector?
It’s possible I misunderstood what this model was.
I don't think they did for all of them - only for some (e.g. Union Station south concourse/platform expansion). The question I have is - if one of the main rationale for P3 delivery is private sector assumption of risk, how much benefit are we really getting from that delivery mode when risk are no longer being assumed by the private sector? It is a form of cherry picking.
