This week's accident near the eastern portal of Ottawa's LRT tunnel isn't expected to cause any delays to the $2.1-billion project.

But the consortium building the rail system is regrouping to figure out how to make up for time lost because of the Rideau Street sinkhole — and how to meet its deadline for the massive project.
