If everyone wasn't aware, they are currently building a new Canal lane, much wider, next to the current Canal. The new lane will be much wider and will have modern, and fewer locks. It's still a few years away from opening, but when it does, they estimate with the width and modern lock system in the new Canal lane, the traffic through the Canal will increase by times 4!
