Tunnelling work for the Confederation LRT line is set to resume next week beneath Rideau Street, about eight weeks after a massive sinkhole swallowed three traffic lanes and a minivan.

There was only about 50 metres of tunnel left to excavate between the Rideau station cavern and Sussex Drive on the morning of June 8, when the road collapse caused work there to halt immediately.
