GDE What the …?

By Kramer - 5 August 2007 32

I was out for a ride today and stumbled upon the following structures on the side of the GDE just behind Calvary. What are they? Artwork? Legitimate construction? Or construction workers mucking around?

I hate to break it to you, but wombats lack the ability to construct something so big. They don’t have thumbs to help them hold construction tools. A monkey on the other hand…

they look pretty dangerous to me. the light pole in the picture is designed to fail when hit by a car, that weird thing looks like a tank trap.

Reminds me of Wombats do to mark their territory. Eats root and leaves. When is John Stanhope leaving?

Perhaps they are there to distract folk while stuck the slow moving GDE morning Traffic ?

It’s obviously the beginnings of our very own “Pear-World”.

It is something to lean your bike on when taking photos

Hehehe.. Giant pears invading the GDE….

Quite cool, although I’ve yet to see pears growing in a railway water tower.

Need a lot of port to poach them – and then a lot of crackers and camenbert and brie to enjoy them.

2 pears. Look in the distance. There’s another one.

So exactly how many of these giant pears are lurking out on the GDE waiting to swoop on unsuspecting Canberrans?

This town just gets stranger and stranger everyday.

Could it be a gigantic over-ripe pear?

To reinforce the sense of crushed down hopelessness felt by the masses, caught in a Sisyphussian struggle between ACT politicians and the hill of good government.

Too much? Nah, it’s got everything: Karl Marx to set off Ralph, Greek mythology for the intellectuals, and a political metaphor to boot. One for the pool room.

Looks like the beginnings of another revenue raiser, er, I mean ‘road safety’ device/speed camera. Not sure what the large stone on top is for though.

Stanhope spening your tax dollars to immortalise himself.

Yeah, I saw those yesterday – assumed it was just art.

(Maybe it’s The Big Pear)

Could be some bizarre throwback to a railway water tower?
