after reveiw, president Martin Torrijos and the cabinet council of panama have approved the proposal to expand the panama canal.
the national assembly will review the proposal and hold discussions that will be open to all panamanian citizens.
the project would double the waterways capacity and allow more traffic by creating a new lane along the canal through the construction of a new set of locks

I understand that there will be a national referendum before this proposal goes ahead, the outcome of which cannot be guaranteed. Many Panama citizens favour the construction of a superport and shipping containers across the izmuth. There's already a railway connecting the present containing terminals at Balboa and Manzanillo but, interestingly, when we stopped at Balboa last trip before transit, we loaded 2,000 containers for, yes you guessed it, Manzanillo.
