I went out today and photographed a few roadblocks, but not all of them, because like a lot of things, it's a case of "seen one seen 'em all"
This is near the corner of East Terrace and Grenfell St.
A little further around the corner into Bartels Road.
To the left of this road is the northern part of Rymill Park, currently housing The Garden of Unearthly Delights tents, part of the Fringe Festival. The trees you see straight ahead are in the southern section of Rymill Park that houses the Christian Brothers College sports ovals.
Rymill Park is divided by Bartels Road.
This is the way my bus usually takes me to work (along Bartels Road) and the last time we rode this way I could see the high wire fences and rubber tyres barricades. But not today. I didn't want to walk closer. The cars were doing their practise runs and that level of noise bothers me.
I'm fairly sure these are the eating and drinking facilities for some of the racegoers.
Further around the track are the much larger grandstands for those who wish to sit up high and view the races.
I won't be one of them.
I wanted to show you more, but as I walked, I realised a lot of the fencing and grandstands etc, I had only seen from the bus windows and on foot I couldn't get to them. Not without walking for hours anyway.
