The China Daily reported China Three Gorges Corporation (CTGC) as saying that an underground power station dug beneath a mountain on the southern bank of the Yangtze River, and a lift for vessels on the river’s northern bank still need to be constructed. Development of the world’s largest water control project began 18 years ago, and includes a huge dam and a five-tier ship lock.
