Panama Canal locks to be working by January 2016

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

The Panama Canal's new set of locks will be operational by the January 2016 deadline, the canal's chief said on Tuesday, after fears that a recent labor strike could have further delayed the project.

"In January 2016 the widened canal will be working," Panama Canal Administrator Jorge Quijano said.

Quijano added that there could still be some work outstanding, but the new locks will be ready for use.
