Following the passing of the Building Transit Faster Act (BTFA) in July of 2020, Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Transportation Ontario partnered with Metrolinx to create the Utility Coordination Program – an initiative focused on streamlining the delivery of Ontario’s priority transit projects through enhanced utility coordination. The goal of this program was to define a new way of working and now that this is complete, the program team has transitioned to focus on its implementation. To monitor compliance to these new processes and to provide end-to-end visibility of utility coordination activities and deliverables, the program has set up an Office of Utility Coordination (OUC). The OUC will function as a central hub for master utility data and associated project KPIs to allow access to reliable information and visibility into project progress for utility and municipal partners. As the OUC evolves it will enhance accountability through this traceability, case management, the centralization of relocation documents and through advanced geospatial capabilities. Gord will introduce this new best practice technology and the lessons learned in setting up and deploying it.
