The Panama Canal ( Spaingie: Canal de Panamá) is a 77.1-kilometre (48 mi) ship canal in Panama that connects the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) tae the Paceefic Ocean. The canal cuts athort the Isthmus o Panama an is a key conduit for internaitional maritime trade.

The current locks are 33.5 metres (110 ft) wide. A third, wider lane o locks is currently unner construction an is due tae open in 2016.
