The Suez Canal Authority (SCA) began work in March to extend a copy that would allow traffic in both directions in a section near where a giant cargo ship ran for six days.

The SCA announced this week that it plans to widen the second lane of the canal, which opened in 2015, to 82 km by 10 km, while widening and deepening the single lane at the southern end of the canal.

The SCA said on Saturday that the work began following orders from Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to “begin immediate implementation of the proposed development plan and thus set a timetable for its speedy completion.”

Barriers created by the 440-meter Evergreen cargo ship south of the channel from March 23 to 29 delayed hundreds of ships at sea, hampering world trade.

In the midst of a dispute over what the SCA said against the Japanese company Shoi Kisan, the owner of the boat, between two lengths of the canal, on the Great Bitter Lake, Ever Given, still loaded with thousands of containers.
