Corinth Isthmus to remain closed to ships beyond January 19, says Corinth Canal company

The Corinth Isthmus will remain closed to all ships and vessels beyond January 19, the Corinth Canal company announced on Monday.

A landslide, which occurred at the Corinth canal last Friday, forced the closure of the Corinth Isthmus.

Geotechnical studies are underway to determine the canal’s stability, in order to reopen the isthmus as soon as is possible, the company added.
