At 8 o'clock on September 25, the first planned suspension and maintenance of the Three Gorges shiplift was successfully completed, and navigation was resumed on time.

The suspension maintenance was officially launched at 8 o'clock on August 21, and lasted for 35 days. It was the first planned suspension maintenance since the completion and acceptance on December 27, 2019.

The Three Gorges ship lift is my country's first rack and pinion climbing vertical ship lift, and it is also the largest and most technically difficult ship lift in the world.

As a fast passage for passenger, cargo ships and special ships, the Three Gorges ship lift works in conjunction with the Three Gorges Ship Lock, which increases the passage capacity and navigation flexibility of the Three Gorges Junction, and enhances the navigation capacity of the Golden Waterway of the Yangtze River.
