Incorrect Appeal Rejection
I fail to understand how a sidewalk does not have pedestrian access. Sidewalks are built so pedestrians can safely walk to their destinations without the risk of being hit by moving vehicles. The supporting photograph clearly shows the geodetic marker is on a sidewalk (lower right corner).
How did Niantic's appeal reviewer decide that a sidewalk and this wayspot does not have pedestrian access.
