Wheelchair Access Blocked

The above photo was taken this afternoon (July 23, 2014) at the gate in front of the State Art Gallery at Dewan Sri Pinang. I was prevented from entering the compound because of the bars built recently. I am a regular visitor to this art gallery. My most recent visit was on June 10, 2014. The gate was still accessible then. I asked around and apparently the bars were built to prevent motorcyclists from parking their motorcycles inside the compound. This again is another example where wheelchair access was blocked because of the abuse by motorcyclists. Someone up there is really very unfair. He should take action against the wrong doers. Instead, he took the easy way out by building these bars.

Below are two photos showing the gate before and after the gate was blocked.
