The man-made Corinth Canal, which separates mainland Greece from the Peloponnese, will temporarily reopen for four months as of Monday in order to accommodate maritime traffic, Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Friday during an inspection of repairs works at the four-mile waterway.

The canal has been closed for a year and a half after rock slides and widespread erosion of its cliff sides, with rise above up to 45 meters from the water.

“There have been no significant interventions at Corinth Canal over the past 130 years,” Mitsotakis reminded.

The waterway will again close in October 22 for the second part of a 32-million project for repair and stabilization works, which will be completed next year.
