The "Level Crossing With Gates or Barriers" sign informs drivers they are approaching a Level Crossing that DOES have gates or barriers. The sign may be used with TSRGD Diagram 773

The Pre-Worboys Sign

Pre-Worboys

The Pre-Worboys sign consisted of a hollow red triangle above a white plate with a Gate in the upper panel and the legend "LEVEL CROSSING" in the lower panel.

Worboys

Since 1964 the traffic sign hasn't changed and it is still used today, it consists of a Gate inside a red triangle. In the 1964 TSRGD it was Diagram 537, until 1994 where it was re-categorised under 'Level Crossing Signs"

Republic of Ireland

In the Republic, two signs exist: W120 and W121 - these denote a level crossing with and without flashing red signals respectively, but do not appear to give information on whether or not gates exist (is this true?)
