Hi, 

I'll try to take a picture this week, however quite a few months ago a rather large generator and what looks like a temporary cellular tower have been erected on the side of the road (literally on the side of the road, taking up a carpark space and has been fenced off). Its not listed on the cell sites map and Id say its been there ever since the start of the year. 

Anyone know?

Does it need a permit? Can it use the footpath? For how long?

So is it there for a set purpose? Or just hanging out because it needs somewhere to stay?

I did see that the other week and wondered what it was too. I don't think the drunk girl using the fence to stay balanced while she threw up was part of that thing though. Lol.
