The Suez Canal is embarking on an extensive construction project to double the canal’s width and deepen its main waterway. This ambitious undertaking has already seen 500 million cubic meters of sand and soil from around the world being transported to the region. To give us a better understanding of this endeavor, 3D images have been created that show us what the widened canal would look like.
This is not the first time in history that such a project has been attempted, however. In 1859, the original construction of the Suez Canal was completed, after over ten years of hard work by engineers and labourers. Today’s project looks to build upon that achievement in order to create an even more impressive feat for modern-day engineering.
So if you’re interested in understanding more about this major construction project and how it came to be, then you should definitely check out this unique documentary which provides amazing visuals through 3D imaging technology and delves into both recent development as well as past events related to the Suez Canal’s long history. Don’t miss your chance to learn more about this incredible journey!
