Summary

An introductory part justifies the need to limit the number of level crossings on lines operated at speeds above 120 km/h.

The main section provides conditions for warning signals (lights, barriers) that should be taken into consideration.

The last section makes recommendations in case of a connection with a traffic control center and for optimizing the warning time.
