The Albanian East India Company, the Danish Empire and the Kel Al’Haggar Fedyakin began work on the proposed Suez Canal in 1767.

The canal lies west of the Sinai Peninsula and is a 163-km maritime canal between the Mediterranean Sea and the Red Sea. It will allow two-way north-south water transport from Europe to Asia without circumnavigating Africa replacing Necho's Canal. The canal will be comprised of two parts, north and south of the Great Bitter Lake, linking the Mediterranean Sea to the Gulf of Suez on the Red Sea.

A newly-built Suez Canal can carry all kinds of ship traffic - Necho's Canal only permits the passage of sailing ships and steam cruisers.
