Types of Level Crossings
Types of level crossings:
There are many different variations of level crossings. Some are controlled by lights,
some with barriers, some with half barriers, some have sirens, and some have gates.
You will also find that some just have a give way line with nothing else.
There are automatic crossings which are activated by a train coming, some that are
controlled manually by a guard, some you will have to ring on the phone provided to
ask to cross, and some are open with only signs and road markings to guide you. At all
these crossings you must take great care. Read ‘The Highway Code’ very carefully so
you know what you must do at each type of crossing.
