agree  Kcda: To establish or create, as in build the pavement. I am not sure if the meaning of "situation" is looking good here. If you are trying to imply "situated" as in "Wo das Gehstieg sein soll" then situation is not ok. The "...state..." of it is okay here.
2 hrs
  -> wo >der< Gehsteig ist ... as in position of; Zustand des Gehsteigs dokument the current state of the pavement. Thanks Kcda

agree  Gillian Scheibelein: or maybe "ascertain the state .." ?
10 hrs
  -> Thanks Gillian, thats a good idea.

neutral  Steffen Walter: See http://www.wien.gv.at/amtshelfer/verkehr/strassen/gehsteigko... (this seems to be an "Antrag um Feststellung der vorschriftsgemäßen Gehsteigherstellung").
14 hrs
  -> Thanks Steffen, you have got a valid point there.
