Antwerp milestone

The first concrete has been laid for the Port of Antwerp's E340M Deurganckdocklock.

Measuring 500m by 68m with a depth of 17.8m, it will be the largest lock in the world. It is based on the design of the Antwerp's Berendrecht lock, which also acted as a model for the upgraded Panama Canal locks. The lock will be notable for its massive concrete L-shaped sluice walls, its rapid filling and emptying, and the two "wheelbarrow type" metal gates at each end.
