Vessel logjam at Three Gorges finally resolved

30 May 2012
A logjam of at least 700 vessels at the Three Gorges Dam was finally dispersed on 26 May, according to the Three Gorges Administration of Navigational Affairs.

The problem started to build up on 7 March when the southern shiplocks at the Three Gorges Dam and the No.1 shiplock at Gezhouba started their scheduled annual maintenance simultaneously. The repair work was completed by 30 April, but subsequent heavy fog continued to disrupt the normal operations of the shiplocks, causing severe delays for passing vessels. At its worst, nearly 1,000 vessels were waiting in the area.
