November 23, 2020

ATHENS — The Corinth Canal will reopen to shipping on November 28, managers said on Monday, as efforts continue to stabilize walls and to remove the earth in the canal after a landslide on November 21.

Initially, Corinth Canal Co. had said the narrow channel between the mainland and the Peloponnese would reopen on Tuesday (Nov. 24), but "the extension is due to the great volume of material, and to addiitonal work related to the landslide."

On Saturday, The Seaven Star cargo ship inside the Corinth Canal, in Corinth, southwest of Athens. The ship which ran aground on its way to cross the canal, was detached and anchored safely near the port of Corinth, with no injuries reported.
