What the bigger Panama Canal means for Australia and international shipping

Lloyd's List Australia - OPINION & ANALYSIS: "This has had its difficulties, such as the raising of the Bayonne Bridge roadway by 20 metres, a US$1.3 billion project due to be completed in late 2017 that is the key to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s efforts to attract larger container ships. Extensive and environmentally sensitive dredging is required at a number of East Coast ports to accommodate the larger vessels as well as extending the booms of ship to shore container cranes in order to service the wider container vessels."
