Corinth Canal Sees 200 Crossings Since Recent Reopening

ATHENS – Some 200 crossings through the Corinth Canal have been recorded since it reopened on July 4, after substantial landslides over the last couple of years and the completion of the first part of repair works that followed, Corinth Canal SA General Director Georgios Zouglis told Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA-MPA) on Saturday.

Crossings are expected to reach 6,500 by October, it was added, the aim being for Corinth Canal to become a model center of global navigation, on a par with global sea routes standards. At the same time, moves are being made for the tourism utilization of the broader area, in view of a sustainable development of the local community, it was underlined.

“We opened with absolute safety, and we are once again providing integrated, upgraded and reliable services to our customers,” added Zouglis.


ATHENS - With one of his top aides threatening to quit over it and wide opposition in his party, Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis’ government is reportedly finalizing a bill to allow same-sex marriage in Greece.
