Insufficient planning in Shanghai

A new $200 million cruise ship terminal was opened recently in Shanghai. There is one rather embarrassing issue. The biggest cruise ships will not be able to dock there because they can’t make the 165 ft clearance under this bridge:

I guess some officials in Shanghai were only thinking about building a new terminal and not about how the biggest cruise ships could get there!
