Discussion has been entered into with the rail regulator as to their requirements which is summarised as a gated crossing sign either side of the crossing plus compliance with any stipulation by the Highway Authority for signs on the A93. It is proposed that gated crossing signs are erected on both easterly and westerly approaches to the crossing turnoff. These will have supplementary plates showing "50 yards" and arrows pointing towards the crossing. A further highway sign will be placed 25 yards on the private track approaching the crossing from the south. Signs will also be erected trackside instructing train crew on how to proceed at the crossing. The types of signs envisaged are shown below but the "Stop board" will have the wording "Open crossing gates and whistle before proceeding". The Society can erect the signs trackside and on the private land without Highway Authority authorisation but authorisation will need to be given before the signs on the A93 can be erected.
