They’ve described it as a set of giant goalposts – goalposts which will sit at the beginning of High Street 2012 – the name given to the road which runs from the City straight through to Romford.
Intriguing stuff, and for those of us who think it looks a bit daft, there is one saving grace: it’s only temporary.
But then again – they said that about the Eiffel Tower.
