French translation:Doit aboutir
Explanation:
Nela:

Shall = doit, car c'est requis
terminate = raccorder, le contexte est probablement que le conduit n'est pas clos, mais ouvert et abouti à l'extérieur à cet endroit.
Une autre suggestion est "doit se raccorder", si le conduit se raccorde à quelque chose à cet endroit.

Bonne chance,

Marc

doit aboutir


Explanation:
I agree with the use of "doit" for the translation of "shall". The English "shall" is used in instructions (and in legal docuemtns) to indicate an obligation. In such contexts, French uses the present indicative of "devoir", here "doit".
