On page 17 of the report, there is an assessment of the key differences between the gap funded model and the concession model, including the advantages and disadvantages of each. It is noted that the target timeline would have to be extended if there was a switch to a concession model. For example, the State might go back to the same operator and say everything will stay the same, as agreed, other than that, say, it might want 100% of the asset at the end of the lifetime instead of 40%. What timeline extension might be required at this stage to switch from the gap funded model to a concession model?
