well, as it is also signed as the end of the legal footway/sidewalk - in 
my opinion it is no need for a _dismount_ there.
In my opinion it is just a legal backdoor, that on these driveways (or 
serviceways?) you leave the legal cycleway/footway (with the regarding 
legal rights above the otherwise crossing traffic) and have to obey the 
crossing traffic for your own risk - even as walker, but also as cyclist.
