A Misleading Pavement

I went to Fort Cornwallis on 13 Oct. 2015. On the way I had to move my wheelchair on a pavement (see map). I was happy to see a kerb ramp at the start of the pavement. But when I reached the other end, I could not find any kerb ramp to get down. This is bad practice. If there is a kerb ramp at one end of a pavement, there MUST be a corresponding kerb ramp at the other end. Or else a wheelchair user could get stranded at the end that does not have kerb ramp.

There are some photos I took of the pavement. It was not properly maintained. Since it is at an area where there are many tourists and visitors, surely the local authority should pay more attention to it.
