LONDON, May 16 (Xinhua) -- The planned High Speed 2 (HS2) railway project in the United Kingdom should aim at a lower speed and terminate outside the heart of London to save "out-of-control" costs, a House of Lords report said on Thursday.
The report, published by the Economic Affairs Committee, reckoned the final cost of the project could significantly exceed the original budget of 56 billion British pounds (71.67 billion U.S. dollars) -- which means the second phase of HS2 might not be built.
