Expect delays ! Upcoming Maintenance work Miraflores locks. (updated July 2022)

Beginning at 0001 hours on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, until 2359 hours on Wednesday, July 20, 2022 (9 days), the East lane of Miraflores Locks will be out of service for scheduled maintenance. The impact of this closure is to vessels using the Panamax locks (old locks system).

As a result, and in accordance with the rules governing the Transit Reservation System (OP Notice to Shipping No. N-7-2022), Condition 2 for the Panamax locks will be in effect from Tuesday, July 12, 2022, through Wednesday, July 20, 2022. This translates into fewer slots being made avaiable via booking. Auction slots are likely to attract large sums of money.
