THE BIGGEST SEALOCK IN THE WORLD!!
Preparations for the construction of a new sea lock are in full swing. The nearly one century old current lock system at the entrance of the North Sea Canal, will be supplemented with a new 70 meters wide, 500 meters long and 18 meters deep sea lock. This will provide an even smoother access to the port of Amsterdam. Expected commencement of the construction is early 2016 and the new sea lock will be open for traffic late 2019.
