This paper describes a method to synchronise the traffic control programme with an active level crossing installation. Signal controlled intersections near the level crossings of main and secondary railway lines need especial care in design. Confrontation of approaching road traffic with inconsistent and misleading information has to be avoided. For traffic lights beyond the level crossing it is necessary that no obstructions occur for traffic clearing the level crossing. (TRRL)
