Closing the Lock

Thursday, September 13, 2007

As Foreign Office Minister Meg is responsible for our relationship with Panama. On a recent visit she was shown the operation of the locks on the Panama Canal. The development of additional wider locks will start soon to let today’s large vessels use it, doubling its capacity. This will be the largest engineering project in the world and Meg was keen to learn of the opportunities for British companies.


Earlier this year the manual system of opening and closing lock gates was replaced by a computerised system. The picture below shows Meg closing the lock gates watched by Canal officials and the British Ambassador to Panama.
