Three Gorges anchorage expansion completed

6 June 2012
A major anchorage expansion project has been completed at Letianxi, situated between the Three Gorges and Gezhouba dams. The 20-month project involved exploding 14 major reefs in the area, removing nearly 300,000 cubic metres of rock.

This particular anchorage is for vessels waiting to pass the Three Gorges shiplocks upstream. The Rmb157m project has deepened the riverbed in the area and improved shipping conditions considerably, according to the Yangtze River Administration. The area has four anchorages comprising 16 berths and allowing for the first time 5,000 dwt vessels to anchor.
