  Suez Canal - MSN Encarta
Suez Canal, artificial waterway running north to south across the Isthmus of Suez in northeastern Egypt; it connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Gulf of Suez, an arm of the Red Sea.
The canal utilizes three bodies of water—Lake Manzilah, Lake Timsāh, and the Bitter Lakes (the latter is actually one continuous body of water)—and is not the shortest distance across the isthmus.
Most of the canal is limited to a single lane of traffic, but several passing bays exist, and two-lane bypasses are located in the Bitter Lakes and between Al Qanţarah and Ismailia.

 Canal Plus - TIME
Britain's 200-year-old canal system, once the country's most important method of freight transport, fell into disrepair by the 1960s as roads and rail transport took traffic away.
Canal building requires tricky engineering over obstacles like hills; the typical solution is a lock, which fills or empties to adjust water height.
On Britain's southernmost canal — the 140-km Kennet and Avon, linking the town of Reading on the Thames to the seaport of Bristol — travelers will encounter dozens of locks, often close together, as in the impressive flight of 16 built in 1810 to climb Caen Hill near Devizes, Wiltshire (pictured).
