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


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.


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?)
