Poll: Do you support the removal of the Balmoral noodle sculpture?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Central Leader

A deteriorating noodle sculpture in Balmoral will be decommissioned due to its poor state.

OnDo! was installed in 2015 by artist Seung Yul Oh as a temporary public art work, and divided public opinion at the time.

The artwork depicts noodles being pulled from the roadworks rubble.

It will be removed on September 30 as materials are deteriorating. Are you happy to see it go?
