The creation of the Panama Canal in 1914 revolutionized global trade, shrinking a 22,500-kilometre voyage from New York to San Francisco to 9,600 kilometres. Now, work is under way on an ambitious development that will add an extra lane and two sets of locks, a $5.25-billion expansion that will triple cargo capacity through the storied waterway, but also redraw global trade routes once more by deepening Asia's access to markets along the Atlantic ocean. Follow the link underneath this gallery to read a full story on the development.
