State Council starts work on alternative to Three Gorges shiplocks

28 May 2014
China Water Transport News reported on 28 May that the State Council has started work to find a viable shipping alternative to the shiplocks in the Three Gorges Dam.

Engineers responsible for designing the shiplocks in the 1980s underestimated the pace of future economic development and demand for shipping. Consequently, the shiplocks reached their full capacity nearly 20 years ahead of the predicted date. By the end of this year, the total cargo volume passing the shiplocks will reach 110m tons, making it difficult to accommodate the fast-growing economies of major interior cities such as Chongqing and Chengdu.
