a steep way is never suitable for wheelchairs, at least not according to
construction standards (e.g. in Germany, 6% is the maximum admitted
incline, which is 6 meters height for every 100 meters projected length,
and even then you have to provide horizontal landings every 6 meters). On
the other hand, sharp corners aren't a problem, a wheelchair can rotate on
the spot, standards require a diameter of 1,50 m, but actual wheelchairs
might be smaller.
