Three Gorges Dam - ship lock

China expects the shipping on the Yangtze to increase 5 fold over the next few years. A traditional lock system is currently used, with a transit time of about 3.5 hours. Over the next year a ship elevator will be completed, this will reduce the transit time to about 45 minutes.
