The Suez Canal has no locks at all ; seawater flows freely through the canal.
It is single-lane with passing places in Ballah By-Pass and in the Great Bitter Lake.
In general, the Canal north of the Bitter Lakes flows north in winter and south in summer. The current south of the lakes changes with the tide at Suez.
