I seem to remember the council was complaining about "padded" numbers used by IO. The $150M figure was basically pulled out of the air, given the time constraints under which the cost estimates had to be produced. In my mind they are currently asking the architects & builders to present their proposals of what can be done within that budget. Then a decision will be made how much of an "upgrade" this will be. The uncertainty around construction costs might be one of the reasons why the council is hesitant on the LRT.
