I'm intrigued. Maybe it's where the cigarette butts are supposed to go, but so far everybody missed.

I am betting that it goes down to a drain system. The orange flex is used to "seal" the tube to another container. I had though of a Vaccum system, but the seal would not be tight enough.

the string is used to pull something else through later like a wire (although im sure it should be coming out of the grey pipe) ,, the orange thing tied to the end is just so the string doesnt get pulled through accidently.

Looks like it might of been a cap to the pipe in the ground but a part of it may be missing! Did you look up to from what you see on the down side?
