Spotlight: Enhancing Utility Coordination Through Improved GeoSpatial Data Tracking

April 13, 2021 11:51 AM | Sandra Crutcher (Administrator)

Enhancing Utility Coordination Through Improved GeoSpatial Data Tracking

Presenters:  Gord Reynolds, Vice President of Commercial Advisory and Strategy at Infrastructure Ontario and/ Alon GatLead of the Office of Utility Coordination,  Metrolinx

In July of 2020 the Government of Ontario passed Bill 171, the Building Transit Faster Act (“BTFA”) to streamline the delivery of the province’s four priority transit projects. In response to this new legislation, Metrolinx partnered with Infrastructure Ontario and the Ministry of Transportation to establish the Utility Coordination Program (UCP), a new initiative which oversees the development of utility relocation standards and the supporting process to improve the location, treatment and relocation of utility infrastructure. To support this program, Metrolinx also established the Office of Utility Coordination (OUC) which monitors compliance to the BTFA and operationalizes the program’s objectives of providing business insight, traceability, and geospatial visualization capabilities in what is referred to as the One Window.

This session will focus on the best practices pertaining to the development and use of GIS-enabled insight management capabilities such as the OUC, in managing, tracking, analyzing and scoring utility coordination through the geospatial lens.
