Crane on Mt Taylor

By Roundhead89 - 8 May 2014 21

crane

Whilst driving home this afternoon I noticed a large crane on the top of Mt Taylor. Does anybody know why it is there and what it is doing? At first I thought it might have been erecting a new monument or else doing some work on the National Transmission Station. If anybody knows for sure could they please enlighten us?

What’s Your opinion?

After all why should our neighbours in NSW have all the glory. Locals ere could then save the run out to Lake George.

Lovely, a moving sculpture. That would be nice.

“A moving sculpture with a huge carbon footprint” is a perfect description for a wind turbine.

Yes I know, coal powered power stations are so much better looking, with the added benefit of adding that lovely bouquet to the air. I smell it every time I drive through the Hunter Valley. Forget the bouquet of the local wines; just smell the air.

That’s the best suggestion yet unless someone suggests it is a mount for a laser harpoon gun to down the Sky Whale.

LOL.

It is an $800-000.00 Stanhope-ian art installation by a “local” artist from Brisbane that we wouldnt understand due to our philistinery that borderlines on redneckedness.

It is called “Quisquiliae”

It symbolises the raising of our cultural and financial awareness regarding public monies and how they should be spent.

They’re moving Mt Taylor to Gungahlin, they think its going to look good next to the light rail.

They’re preparing for the budget, Hockey will be forced to bungy jump as payback…

If they sold raffle tickets and the winner could set the length of the bungee, the national debt would be wiped out by revenue from ticket sales…

A disgruntled machine operator from Majura Rd perhaps?
