This working committee report aims at simplifying design and construction techniques for automatic grade crossing protection and at reducing installation, operating and maintenance costs in the light of current European experience. Types of gates and warning devices, intervals for warnings to be given, elimination of manual crossing protection and standards for road surfaces and profiles are all discussed. A 10-year program for eliminating 1,000 manned crossings and reduced regulatory constraints on this process are recommended.
