Name that tunnel…


If you keep up over at, you’ll know that Ottawa is considering the construction of a transit tunnel to take future light-rail passangers from one side of downtown to the other. It’s contentious. It’s expensive. And it needs a freaking name.

Offer your suggestions for a great tunnel name at OttawaStart and TransitOttawa.

From OttawaStart:

We’re jumping the gun here – still a lot of approvals, consultations, and financing to go through – but we thought it would be fun to start thinking about a name for Ottawa’s new tunnel. It needs a good nickname like the Chunnel (England/France) or even Boston’s “The Big Dig”.

Some suggestions so far at both sites include:

  • Larry’s Basement
  • Ottawa Underground
  • Capitunnel
  • Be-Lo-Train
  • The PayWay
  • The Big Dig, Canada edition
  • O-ttawa
    (Commenter adds a slogan: “Get OUT of Ottawa, and home to suburbia quicker”)
