21. Protecting railway signals shall be provided and these shall be interlocked with the barriers so that it shall not be possible, other than by hand, to raise the barriers from their positions across the carriageway unless the protecting railway signals are set at Danger and whilst the barriers are raised it shall not be possible to clear those signals.

The arrangements shall be such that the protecting railway signals can only be cleared after the barriers are fully lowered and after the 'crossing clear" push-button has been pressed. Unless the protecting signals have been cleared for another train, all the barriers shall rise simultaneously either after the 'raise" push-button has been pressed or automatically as soon as the train has passed clear of the crossing.
13. If a train overruns a protecting signal the arrangements shall be such that the red lights will immediately show omitting the amber sequence, the audible warning will sound and all barriers remain in the raised position.
14. The intermittent red lights shall continue to show until the barriers have begun to rise and shall be extinguished before the barriers have risen to an angle of 45 degrees above the horizontal.
15. If any barrier fails to rise from the lowered position the intermittent red lights shall continue to show.
16. Should automatic lowering or raising take an abnormally long time an audible and visual warning shall be given at the control point.
