[…] The work is being carried out by consulting engineers Pell Frischmann and is due to be completed by March.

A further £47,000 is being spent by SYPTE on ‘media and engagement work’ for HS2 by IPB Communications.

Details have been revealed in a report to Sheffield City Region Combined Authority, which represents the area’s local councils.

It comes just a few days after plans to make £7.6m cuts were unveiled by SYPTE. Its proposals could see up to 50 jobs lost and information centres closed.
[…]
Peter Howarth, from the Killamarsh and Renishaw HS2 Action Group, said: “It is wrong we are losing money on the infrastructure we have to do this. I find it absolutely preposterous. I think there will be more cuts to pay for HS2. This is the tip of a massive iceberg.”
