Canal expansion moving forward

Posted on by in

The first gates to the new locks complex in the Atlantic side of the Panama Canal Expansion were delivered in late July.


Eight of the 16 rolling gates that will be used for the new locks were already in Panama. The remaining eight will arrive in two separate shipments from its manufacturing site in Italy.


At that time, the expansion was more than three-quarters complete. The new locks are expected to open in the first half of next year.
