A video released by the Panama Canal shows the April update of the on-going expansion project, which is due to be completed in early 2016.
PTI previously reported on the March update of the Panama Canal’s construction, where the project had reached 86% completion.
The project is now focused on electro-mechanical installation which will allow the project to be brought into its final stage.
Flooding of the new locks is set to begin in mid-2015 and will start the compliance and operations-testing period.
As of March 31, 2015, the expansion programme is 88% complete.
