German state rail carrier Deutsche Bahn, which is carrying out the massive project, announced yesterday that final costs will be EUR 1.1 billion more than previously expected, bringing the total cost to EUR 5.6 billion. The project will replace the current overground, terminal station with a more efficient underground one. Critics have decried the project as too expensive and too environmentally risky.
