Toronto's top bureaucrat is recommending that the city allocate $3.8 billion in federal transit funding to two subway projects that the province has proposed extensive changes to but only upon the satisfactory completion of an assessment that will be seek clarity on more than 60 unanswered questions.

City Manager Chris Murray made the recommendation in a 20-page report that was released on Tuesday afternoon, less than a week after Premier Doug Ford's government unveiled a $28.5 billion plan to build four new transit lines in the GTA.

In the report, Murray says that the city could use some of the $4.897 billion in federal transit funding it has been promised to contribute to the province's revamped plan for the relief subway line and Line 2 extension but only after an assessment of the changes being proposed by the province is completed and brought before council for further consideration.
