Panama Canal Expansion Faces Delay

Panama Canal Expansion Faces Delay

According to portstrategy.com, the design and construction contract to build the third set of locks for the Panama canal is to suffer a seven-month delay.

Alberto Alemán Zubieta, who is still the Administrator of the Panama Canal, explained the delay was due to the pouring of concrete.

He said the contractor was not allowed to start pouring concrete because the mixture did not have the specifications as ordered for this type of work, as detailed in the signed contract.

Nevertheless, the Panama Canal Authority insists that the project will open on time in October 2014.
