A trial of a portable urinal on the footpath of Oxford St on Friday and Saturday nights has been criticised by local businesses.

2010 Business Partnership president Lawrence Gibbons threatened to hold an “old-fashioned pissing contest” with local politicians’ photos as the targets if another location cannot be found.

The Star Observer understands Greens councillor Irene Doutney raised the matter at a council meeting on Monday after receiving around a dozen complaints about the location.

“This is a trial, and if the urinal is not supported by the community, it will be moved,” a City of Sydney spokesman said.
