A video released by the Panama Canal shows the August update of the massive Panama Canal expansion project, which is on schedule to be completed by early 2016.

The most recent video update of the Panama Canal shows the project continuing with its electro-mechanical installation, in order to bring the project to its final stage.


At present, the project is proceeding on from the same stages of development, while focusing on the installation of the 152 valves that are needed for controlling the water-flow, as well as the culverts and chambers.
