5. section

Mounting the protective devices

General crossing

Crossing must be § 22 (1) for the road users easily and in a timely manner recognizable before all railway crossings on pipe supports, masts with booms, boom poles, attachments or place appropriate to others.

(2) before the single-track railway crossings are to install simple St. Andrew's cross. Double crossing are to bring multi-pronged railway crossings. Railway crossings shall be considered multi-tracked within a switch.

(3) the crossing must be usually on both sides of the street. The installation of the crossing on the right hand side or on the left side of the road is not possible, the crossing on the left side of the road and above the roadway or on the right side of the road and above the roadway are to install. The installation of the crossing on the right nor on the left side of the road, a St. Andrew's cross above the roadway is possible to install. The roadway in the direction of approach to the railway crossing has more than a lane, a St. Andrew's cross above the roadway in addition in any case is to install.

(4) at railway crossings with roads, where in the range of 80 m each on both sides of the railway an unhindered together passing multi-track road vehicles is not possible, simply attaching an Andreas cross on the right side of the road. In addition, Andreas crosses on other appropriate occasions from railway crossing can be attached.

(5) in the case of railway crossings with a walkway, with a bike path or with a for pedestrians and cyclists to taking pedestrian and cycle path together the St. Andrew's cross usually on the right side of the road to install is. This is not possible, the St. Andrew's cross on the left side of the path to install. At railway crossings with a pedestrian and bike path where the pedestrian and bike traffic separately, are the crossing on both sides of the path to install. The installation of the crossing on the right side of the road or on the left side of the road is not possible are the crossing on the left side of the road and above the trail or on the right side of the road and above the path to install. The installation of the crossing on the right nor on the left side of the road, a St. Andrew's cross above the way to install is possible. In addition, Andreas crosses on other appropriate occasions from railway crossing can be attached.

(6) run before the railway crossing in more streets in the road leading to the railway crossing, at least a St. Andrew's cross must be from every which a street light and in a timely manner recognizable. If necessary, is on those which a streets, from which an easy and timely recognition of Andreas cross is omitted, an extra St. Andrew's cross on the right side of the road to the road leading railway crossing to install. This is not possible, the St. Andrew's cross on another suitable place to install. In addition, Andreas crosses on other appropriate occasions can be attached. If necessary, an indicative on the location of the railway crossing additional slab "Arrow" is to install. This is, unless otherwise stated in the following provisions, to install below the Andreas cross.

(7) Andreas crosses are usually at a distance of 3 m from the nearest rail. If the local conditions require it, this distance may be reduced so far as the other statutory provisions do not preclude.

(8) in the case of stumpfwinkeligen junctions, the intersection of the left boundary is to determine a 2.60 m wide road with the limitation of the danger room of the railway. The St. Andrew's cross on the right side of the road is in this case, taking into account the necessary page distance of the Andreas cross to the edge of the road to position, that a standing before the Andreas cross vehicle approached no closer than 2.75 m on the axis of the nearest track projects.

(9) the requirements of paragraph 7 and 8 may not be met, the St. Andrew's cross in a such close distance to the nearest rail attached must, as the other statutory provisions do not preclude. In this case the railway undertaking intends placing a stop line in one of the provisions of paragraph 7 and 8 corresponding distance to the nearest bar to the institution of the burden of road construction.


(10) the distance between the lower edge of the Andreas cross or the bottom of the table and the road must not be not less than 0.60 m and only in exceptional cases more than 2.50 m, when mounted above the carriageway not less than 4.50 m and only in exceptional cases more than 5.50 m for side mounting. During lateral fixing the lateral distance between the edge of the first included the roadway of the Andreas cross or the edge of the Panel initially included the roadway and the edge of the road may be less than 1 m and more than 2.50 m not less than 0.30 m and only in exceptional cases more than 2 m, on free roads only in exceptional cases in the local area. Also rule sign and/or additional panels are attached to the St. Andrew's cross, the measurements regarding the height distance apply the lower trigram and dimensional data with regard to the lateral distance for the closer to the road sign.

(11) whether crossing horizontal or upright, and in what format to attach them, arises from the sections 23, 26, 29 and 33. Crossing on both sides of the street are attached, both Andrews crosses are either lying or standing to apply. Andreas crosses above the carriageway shall be always in horizontal form.

Andrews crosses, regulation signs and additional table "eighth on trains" in securing by ensuring the necessary point of view room

section 23. The backup by ensuring the necessary point of view space, Andrews crosses with the III format, usually in the form should be used. The installation of the crossing with the form III in the form due to the local conditions is not possible, the crossing with the form III in the form have to be. At railway crossings with walkways, bike paths or pedestrian and cycle paths the format I usually in the form of lying is to use. The installation of the crossing with the format I in this form on the basis of local conditions is not possible, the crossing with the format I in the form of standing are to install. The Saint Andrew's crosses with the format III at railway crossings with walkways, bicycle paths or with walking and cycling trails is allowed.

The affixing of the rule mark 'Speed restriction (speed limit)' with the additional panel is "watch on trains" on the right road to level the relevant point of seeing not easily and in a timely manner recognizable or not possible, is this rule sign with the additional panel at the right edge of the roadway on height of nearby before the relevant see point nearest possible to install easily and in a timely manner recognizable. If necessary, the rule characters 'Speed restriction (speed limit)' with the additional panel is "trains pay attention to" in addition to the left of the road to install.

(2) the rule mark "End of speed restriction" is below of the Andreas cross in the form to attach above of the Andreas cross in standing form and right of the St. Andrew's cross above the roadway.

(3) stopping the driver of vehicles before the railway crossing is the determination of the required visual space to use, this is by means of the rule sign "Stop" underneath of the Andreas cross in the form to display above the Andreas cross in standing form and right of the St. Andrew's cross above the roadway.

(4) different points of view prevail for an approach towards of the road for reasons of point of view against the starting point and the end point of the line, the lower to legend based approach speed with the instruction sign "Speed restriction (speed limit)" or, where appropriate, the Anhalt bid with the instruction sign to indicate "Stop" is the road.

§ 25. In the course of the road before a railway junction, which is secured by ensuring the necessary perspective space in conjunction with a rule characters "Speed restriction (speed limit)", restricting the speed for other reasons than securing a railway crossing required, no provision characters "Speed restriction (speed limit)" at a higher speed than those may which in terms of the necessary point of view room, which secure the railway crossing has been applied is , be installed.

Andrews crosses, regulation signs and additional table "watch whistle signal" at the fuse by placing acoustic signals from the rail out

section 26. The backup by placing acoustic signals from the rail out, Andrews crosses with the III format, usually in the form should be used. The installation of the crossing with the form III in the form due to the local conditions is not possible, are crossing with the form III in the form to attach. At railway crossings with walkways, bike paths or pedestrian and cycle paths the format I usually in the form of lying is to use. The installation of the crossing with the format I in this form on the basis of local conditions is not possible, are crossing with the format I in the form to attach. The Saint Andrew's crosses with the format III at railway crossings with walkways, bicycle paths or with walking and cycling trails is allowed.

Section 27 (1) for the direction of the road, for which the required visual space against one or both directions of the railway does not exist, is "on whistle signal watch" to attach to the St. Andrew's cross before the railway crossing the instruction sign "Stop" with the additional panel. The instruction sign "Stop" with the additional panel 'attention from whistle signal"is below of the Andreas cross in the form to attach above of the Andreas cross in standing form and right of the St. Andrew's cross above the roadway.

(2) in the case of railway crossings for pedestrian traffic only, there is no provision character to bring 'Stop' to the St. Andrew's cross. The additional panel "watch whistle signal" must be affixed below of the Andreas cross.

Crossing and signal the backup light sign

Light characters are section 28 (1) for the road users easily and in a timely manner recognizable from railroad crossing below the crossing in this form, to install above the crossing in the form of standing and right the crossing above the roadway.

Requirements for the types of backups

Protection by ensuring the necessary point of view room

Principle

40. (1) when backing up a railway crossing by ensuring the necessary point of view space, destined for the vehicular and pedestrian traffic, is to make sure that



1 bar of vehicles that approaching the railway crossing speed resulting from the regulation characters "Speed restriction (speed limit)" and perceive a rail vehicle approaching the railway crossing from the appearance point if relevant, can reliably stop before the railway crossing or, if a pause before the railway crossing is no longer possible for them, Z 1 to 5 in the area of railway crossing safely negotiate and leave can the railway crossing without delay and in compliance with the relevant minimum speed according to § 45 para 2 or

2. steering of vehicles that can stop and perceive no rail vehicle approaching the railway crossing from the appearance point if relevant, after safely navigated the railway crossing without delay and in compliance with the relevant minimum speed according to § 45 para 2 Z 1 to 5 in the area of railway crossing and leave on the basis of the rule mark "Stop" before the railway crossing and 3. approaching the railway crossing pedestrians , can if they perceive no rail vehicle approaching the railway crossing from the relevant for that purpose see point No. 6 in the area of railway crossing safely commit the railway crossing without delay and in compliance with the minimum speed according to § 45 para 2 and leave.

(2) in securing a railway crossing by ensuring the necessary point of view room, which is intended for pedestrian traffic alone is to make sure that pedestrians approaching the railway crossing, when they from the relevant for that purpose see point perceive no rail vehicle approaching the railway crossing, the railway crossing without delay and in compliance with the minimum speed according to § 45 para 2 safely commit Z 6 in the area of railway crossing and can rely.

See point, point, point of intersection

41. (1) the watch point is that 1 m above the surface of the road, usually 2 m away from the right edge of the road point before the location of the Andreas cross, from which for the road users there should be at least recognizable a rail vehicle approaching the railway crossing. The watch point before the location of the Andreas cross from the nearest rail of the first track is to adopt multi-pronged railway crossings. For pedestrians, the watch point of for this, on the edge of the road is related, worst place to accept.

(2) in the case of railway crossings for vehicle traffic and railway crossings with pedestrian and cycle paths anyway, also the distance of the required point of view point of the crossing point for pedestrian traffic or for cycling traffic is to determine.

42. (1) is the point that 1 m above the track axis, point, from which a train approaching the railway crossing from the appearance point must be visually perceptible or is actually visually perceptible.

(2) the required point is that 1 m above the track axis, point, from which a rail approaching the railway crossing from the appearance point must be visually perceptible.

(3) the existing viewpoint is that 1 m above the track axis, point at a rail vehicle from the appearance point approaching the railway crossing is actually visually perceptible.

§ 43. The crossing point is the 1 m above the intersection of point road and rail axis intended.

Determine of the location of the reputation points

44. (1) is the location of reputation points, if not stop the cars before the railway crossing is to be based, to determine that vehicles from an initial speed of 40 km/h, 30 km/h, 20 km/h, 10 km/h, 8 km/h and 6 km/h with a deceleration of 2,2 m/s² for road vehicles with a design speed greater than 25 km/h and with a deceleration from 2.0 m/s² for road vehicles with a design speed to 25 km/h and a detection and response time for the road user by 1.2 seconds and a response time of brake by 0.6 seconds in front of the railway crossing can stop (stopping). A gap between the front limit of the vehicle and handlebars of road vehicle by 2.0 m is the value so determined for road vehicles to be added.

(2) for bicycles on bike paths or on walking and cycling routes para 1 is determining the position of the watch point according to to use an output speed of 20 km/h and a deceleration of 4 m/s². A gap between the front limit of the bicycle and handlebars of the bike of 1.0 m is the value so determined on bicycles to be added.

(3) for pedestrians on sidewalks or walking and cycling trails, a speed of 0.8 m/s is determining the location of the Visual point referred to in paragraph 1 to be based.

(4) the result determined in accordance with paragraphs 1 to 3 is mathematically be rounded to whole numbers.

(5) a pause before the railway crossing is to apply, the position of the watch point to accept 2 m in front of the site of the Andreas cross.


(6) left and right of the car different reputation points can be decisive.

Determination of the approach time required and the location of points of view needed

45. (1) the required convergence times of rolling stock on the railway crossing and therefore the distances required, are the respective according to § 44-determining reputation points view points from the crossing point to determine that road users perceive the rapprochement of the rail vehicle in time and stop, if necessary, before the railway crossing or safely leave the railway crossing can.

(2) the determination referred to in paragraph 1 is the time



1. the vehicles with or without trailer and cargo total up to 20 m long that for dismounting a line of that begins with the stopping from a speed of 40 km/h, 30 km/h and 20 km/h and 2 m after the last track ends, require;

2. the vehicles that with or without a trailer and cargo total up to 20 m long, for putting back a track that starts 7 m in front of the site of the Andreas Cross and 2 m after the last track ends, with a minimum speed of 2.78 m/s need.

3. the carts in the sense of StVO 1960 that are over 10 to 16 m long, need to put back a track that starts 6 m before the location of the Andreas Cross and 2 m after the last track ends with a minimum speed of 2.22 m/s together with the charge;

4. the carts in the sense of StVO 1960 which are, need to create a track that starts 4 m in front of the site of the Andreas Cross and 2 m after the last track ends with a minimum speed of 1.67 m/s back and charge up to 10 m long;

5. the cyclists who with or without trailer and cargo total until are 3 m long to put back a track, begins the 3 m before the location of the Andreas cross, 2 m after the last track ends, with a minimum speed of 1.67 m/s need and 6 the pedestrian for dismounting a track that starts 2 m in front of the site of the Andreas Cross and 2 m after the last track ends , with a minimum speed of 0.8 m/s need to be based.

In addition, it is a time off until the arrival of the rail vehicle in the intersection of 1 second (rest time) be added to the time of leaving the railway crossing.

(3) is to use a stop before the crossing of the railway of determining the distance of the required point of view point of the crossing point, Nos. 3 and 4 for the driving of vehicles in accordance with paragraph 2 Nos. 3 and 4 until you reach the speed referred to in paragraph 2 an of driving power from 0.5 m / s2, of vehicles referred to in paragraph 2 No. 2 to obtain the speed referred to in paragraph 2 No. 2 on driving acceleration of 1.0 m / s2, as well as for cyclists one of driving power of 0.5 m/s2 to accept Z 5 until you reach the speed referred to in paragraph 2. In addition, it is a time off until the arrival of the rail vehicle in the intersection of 3 seconds (rest time) be added to the time of leaving the railway crossing.

(4) the result determined in accordance with paragraphs 1 to 3 is mathematically be rounded to whole numbers.

(5) in determining the required distance of the view point of the crossing point referred to in paragraph 2, Nos. 1 to 4 and 3 para at railway crossings, which determines in a crossing angle of 90 °, from the track axis starting in a clockwise direction towards the axis of the road, is to consider a vehicle width of 2.60 m.

(6) in the case of railway crossings for vehicle traffic and railway crossings with pedestrian and cycle paths also the distance of the necessary point of view point of the crossing point for pedestrian traffic is in any case to determine.

(7) railway crossings can allows as railway crossings are treated with walkways, if facilities are available, use the railway crossing with walking and cycle paths or cycle tracks only pushed bicycles.

(8) the determination of distances the required the pursuant to section 44 to determining reputation points respective view points of the crossing point has to be made with the results of the investigations referred to in paragraphs 1 to 6 and the locally acceptable speed on the rail in the area of the railway crossing.

Required visual space, existing Visual space

46. (1) the required visual space is the space located above the surface of the connecting lines between the points of intersection, the reputation points to be determined in accordance with section 44 and the these reputation points associated, is made in accordance with section 45 to determining necessary point of view points and upwards by a 1.50 m above the reputation points and each 3 m of the crossing point and the required point, space is limited.

(2) the existing Visual space is that space, which is above the surface, the connecting lines between the crossing point, the vision points to be determined in accordance with section 44 and the corresponding existing points of view made this watch points and upwards by a 1.50 m above see point and each 3 metres over the crossing point and the existing point, surface area is limited.

Section 47 (1) at every railroad crossing is to look at the Visual space into four quadrants. The quadrants can be described as follows:



Quadrant I:





left the car against the starting point of the route.







Quadrant II:





right rail against the starting point of the route.







Quadrant III:





left the car against the end of the line and







Quadrant IV:





right rail against the end of the line.





The name "left the railway" and "right track", "Starting point of the line" and "End of the line" is to proceed in terms of Chainage moderate consensus called of the track.

(2) the crossing angle between the axis of the road and the axis of the railway is going to determine in a clockwise direction towards the axis of the road from the track axis. Is the history which is not straightforward, road or the history of the railway in the area of the railway crossing to a tangent to the arc of the axis of the car and a tangent to the arc of the road. The crossing angle between the axis of the road and the axis of the railway is due to the angle of these tangents in the intersection of the axis of track starting in a clockwise direction to the road axis, to determine.

(3) for the determination of the basic area of perspective space in one quadrant, the connection lines between the crossing point, see point and the corresponding point are generally decisive. The connecting line from the appearance point to the point intersects the track axis, is to create a tangent to the curves from the view point and is decisive for the determination of the basic area of Visual space that area by the imaginary line from the intersection point on the watch point about the tangent point on the railway axis till to the point and back to the point of intersection is limited.

(4) traffic mirrors are not allowed for the production of the required visual space.

Investigation of the available visual space

Section 48 (1) the determination of the available visual space of the respective see point to be determined in accordance with section 44 a viewing angle of the road vehicle is to the left of 1000 and right from 900 to be based.

(2) the existing Visual space is provided for in paragraph 1 and on the basis of the to be determined pursuant to § 46 para 2 required view room from the respective see point on-site to determine. This is to determine whether the views of a rail vehicle approaching in the required visual space from the respective, required point of the railway crossing is fully given from the respective appearance point.

(3) the view to be determined in accordance with paragraph 2 is not fully given, is to determine whether the limitation of the view as essential within the meaning of paragraph 49 is due to the local conditions.

Keeping clear of the required view room

Section 49 (1) at railway crossings, which are secured by ensuring the necessary Visual space, is the required visual space to keep permanently so that the peak signal of the rail vehicle approaching the railway crossing the road user of the required point is recognizable to the railway junction at day and night without major Visual limitations.

(2) point of view constraints are then not essential, if affected despite existing Visual obstacles of the angle of view of the traffic participant only slightly and for a short time and the approaching rail vehicle is covered not frontally.

Point of view-obstructing conditions

§ 50th Sichtbehindernde there are conditions, if the required visual space temporarily, is limited snowfall or high snow conditions, for example, through fog.

Section 51 (1) at railway crossings with vehicle traffic, which are protected by ensuring the necessary point of view area has the railway undertaking in appropriate way to ensure the recognition of the existence of vision-inhibiting conditions.


(2) point of view-obstructing conditions exist before driving over the railway crossing at the required point of view point, the speed is so far to minimize that the required distance of the view point of the crossing point to be determined in accordance with section 45 with this speed is not more than 120 m. This speed is at this speed on the track until you reach the railway crossing to comply required point. From the point necessary for this speed on the track, repeated acoustic signals from the railway are to give out at the same time until you reach the railway crossing. The point required for this reduced speed on the track is to display.

Measures in case of temporary restriction of required visual space in securing by ensuring the necessary point of view room

52. (1) if the securing by ensuring of necessary point of view space of the decision of the Authority applied required visual space temporarily restricted the railway undertaking for the duration of the temporary restriction may, if the fuse can be maintained by ensuring the necessary point of view space, the corresponding to the conditions, secured the railway crossing rule characters "Speed restriction (speed limit)" or requirement sign "Stop", if necessary, under simultaneous reduction of speed on the railway in accordance with the available visual space , attach.

(2) If this is not possible, can the railway undertaking before railway crossings with vehicular cycling traffic alone or with pedestrian and bicycle traffic the instruction sign "Stop" with the additional panel "whistle signal watch" install. The additional panel "on whistle signal make sure" is to install pedestrian traffic alone. If vehicular speed on the railway is ready to minimize the distance to be determined in accordance with article 45 of the required point of view point of the crossing point must not exceed 120 m. The appropriate point is to display. Repeatedly acoustic signals of the rolling stock are out to give from this signal to reach the railway crossing.

(3) the attached regulation signs have the effect, as if they had been ordered by the authority. Subject is immediately reported to the nearest police station.

(4) the removal of the temporary restriction of the required view room is to get immediately by the railway undertaking.

Section 82 (1) by a combination of light signal or sign of light barriers with light signals at nearby road crossings (traffic lights) shall be either timely clearing of railway crossing the road users are ensured or contributed to avoid traffic jam formation between railway crossings and nearby intersections with traffic lights. Whether and in what form of interaction is required, must be assessed in each individual case, taking into consideration the local conditions and traffic requirements.

(2) the interaction of light signal or sign of light barriers with traffic lights is required to ensure of the timely evacuation of the railway crossing by road users, must



1. either all leading to the railway drive relations on the road crossing through separate light signals for the control of road traffic at the intersection are regulated (tracks signalling) or needs 2. track logging all driving relations on the road junction are available (all red) stop.

The requirements referred to in Z 1 or 2 are not met, the railway crossing light sign with barriers, which interact with the traffic lights at the nearby intersection, must be secured.

(3) in the cases of para 2 Nos. 1 and 2 are to attach light characters in addition to the light signals for the driving relations leading to regulation of road traffic at the intersection at a suitable place for all the car on the road crossing ("enemy car" driving relations).

(4) the interaction of the light or the light characters with barriers and the traffic lights at the nearby road intersection in accordance with paragraph 2 is to make as follows:



1 after a car registration by the light or the light characters with barriers at the traffic lights at the nearby intersection is where appropriate to enable clearing the railway crossing the road users on the "enemy car" driving routes and have the light or the light characters with barriers to get that "enemy car" driving relations offered by the traffic light signal system containing the feedback. The length of time between car registration and re-registration is as short as possible, whereby the minimum prescribed in the relevant regulations for the individual phases of the phase sequence of the traffic lights at the intersection may be reached.

2. After confirming the signal or the signal with barriers, that by the traffic light signal system is offered hold "enemy car" driving relations, not flashing red light is on the transducers of light or the light characters with barriers without switching to the previous yellow non-flashing lights.

3. no feedback on the sign of light or the light signs with barriers, that by the traffic light signal system is offered hold "enemy car" driving relations, is to connect to the sirens of the light or the light characters with barriers of 4 seconds yellow not blinking light and then up to turn off red not blinking light. The traffic lights at the nearby road intersection in this case either to completely switch off or took off their sirens, those for the "enemy car" driving relations to show yellow blinking light. The paddles for the "rail-hostile" relationships may show no yellow blinking light.

4. the traffic lights at the nearby road intersection at the time of a Web application is located by the light or the light characters with barriers at the traffic lights at the nearby road intersection in flashing mode (yellow flashing light), is the State about an own stage routine described in Nos. 1 and 2 (launcher) to produce; otherwise is no. 3.

5. the light or the light characters with barriers are depending on to bring a solid signal and the railway crossing by rail vehicles can only be used if the conditions referred to in Nos. 1 and 2 are fulfilled. Otherwise, are the requirements according to no. 3 to establish and to proceed in accordance with section 95 relating to the provisions on the measures in the event of a fault. The application of the provisions on the measures in the event of a fault may be waived if adapt the rolling stock in the way they operate the nature of road transport.

(5) in the case of interaction of light or light signal with barriers and traffic lights at nearby intersections in accordance with paragraph 4, the convergence time of the rail vehicle consists of the time that is required for the entails due to car registration procedures in accordance with paragraph 4, Nos. 1 and 2 and the convergence time for rail vehicles when light or light signal with barriers. In the time that is required for the entails due to car registration procedures in accordance with paragraph 4, Nos. 1 and 2 are times (technology times) to be considered for the switching sequences and the corresponding queries of data from electronic systems necessary. So determined is mathematically be rounded to whole numbers.

Monitoring of light and light characters with barriers

Types of monitoring

Section 87 (1) which is proper State (availability monitoring) of light or the light characters with barriers or the proper function (monitoring function) of the light or the light characters with barriers to display in a supervisory authority or a solid signal.

(2) the monitoring of the display of the correct state or proper function of can be done through a staffed Office (remote monitoring) or by the rolling stock (train driver monitoring).

(3) in the case of remote monitoring, the proper State (availability) of light or the light characters with barriers in an occupied operating agency is to display. The examination of the ordnungsgenmäßen State also has the examination to include whether driving a rail vehicle on the railway crossing the light or the light characters with barriers have to work correctly with. In the cases of § 69 para 2 to 4, the checking of the correct condition in addition the audit to include whether the barriers trees have left the open end position respectively has whether the barriers trees have reached the closed end position.

(4) in the case of drive drivers monitor is the proper State or the proper function to display.

(5) in the case of train driver monitoring, which monitors the proper condition of the light or the light characters with barriers, is the proper State (availability) to view the monitoring signal. If you drive driver monitoring, which monitors the correct functioning of the light or the light characters with barriers, the proper function to view the monitoring signal.

(6) in the case of train driver monitoring, which monitors the correct functioning of the light or the light characters with barriers, is to show after a ride induced activation or a not ride induced switching on the monitor signal, yellow, not flashing light and the red light not flashing lights up when light signals or, that the yellow, not flashing light and the red light not flashing lights when light signals with barriers and the barriers of trees have left the open end position. The journey time between the monitoring signal and railway crossing for it is sufficient that the barriers of trees at the arrival of the rail vehicle on the railway crossing the closed end position have reached or is not guaranteed that the barriers of trees have left the open end position and at the arrival of the rail vehicle on the railway crossing the closed end position have achieved this, is to show after a not drive hoped up, that the yellow , not blinking light and the red light not flashing lights and barriers trees have reached the closed end position.

(7) light, or light characters with barriers under cover of a signal are located is to monitor the proper State in accordance with paragraph 3. The appropriate conditions are met for that purpose, is also the proper function within the meaning of paragraph 5 in the opaque signal to monitor.

(8) the improper condition or the improper function of light and light characters with barriers in accordance with paragraph 3 to 5 are to display the monitoring body as a disorder.

(9) the improper condition or not properly, which are not treated as a disorder in accordance with para 7, viewable in addition the Monitoring Agent error.

(10) the remote monitoring and train drivers can be arranged next to each other also.

Remote monitoring

88. (1) a railway crossing can be used only, if the monitoring body no interference pursuant to § 91 is displayed or no disorder pursuant to § 91, which cannot be displayed in the workplace, has been reported.

(2) If a disturbance pursuant to § 91 displayed the monitoring point or a disturbance pursuant to § 91, which cannot be displayed in the workplace authority, reported that this has to proceed pursuant to the provisions of § 95 of the measures in the event of a fault. The monitoring Office has immediately to get the correct of the interference. This has recurring or maintaining error displays the monitoring site immediately to get their fix.

(3) the driver detects the presence of disorder pursuant to § 91, he has to inform the next occupied premises immediately. This place has to proceed before approval further journeys in accordance with the provisions of section 95 of the measures in the event of a fault and immediately the remedying of disturbance to cause further.

(4) will light or light signal with barriers, which are under cover of the signal and in relation to this signal, diagnosed with a disorder pursuant to § 91 and the monitoring location indicated, this has before approval of the drive in accordance with the provisions of section 95 of the measures in the event of a fault to go ahead and immediately the remedying of disturbance to cause further. This has recurring or maintaining error displays the monitoring site immediately to get their fix.

Drive driver monitoring

89. (1) drive driver monitoring must be applied, if the fixed maximum speed on the railway between the power authority and the railway crossing or between the control signal and the railway crossing does not exceed 100 km/h.

(2) the monitoring signal has to show whether the railway crossing can be used. The railway crossing can only be used be, no disturbance pursuant to § 91 is displayed on the monitor signal.

(3) is displayed on the monitor signal that the railway crossing can not be used, has to stop the railway before the railroad crossing and may continue after giving warning signals. The driver is immediately reported to the nearest occupied premises by the presence of the disorder. This place has to proceed in accordance with the provisions of section 95 of the measures in the event of a fault and immediately the remedying of disturbance to cause further.


(4) the monitoring signal with the proper role monitoring takes place, is to set up usually on braking distance length before the railway crossing or for reasons of visibility of the monitoring signal accordingly further away from the railway crossing. The speed on the track at the location of the monitoring signal is decisive for the length of brake path. The monitor signal must be visible on a route that corresponds to a signal observation time of at least 9 seconds before the monitor signal, usually. This is not possible, on the basis of local conditions the monitoring signal on a route that corresponds to a signal observation period of at least 7 seconds before the monitor signal that must be visible.

(5) to be used to monitor signal, with the proper role monitoring takes place not on braking distance length, but just before the railway crossing or for reasons of visibility of the monitoring signal accordingly further away from railway crossing and which is not provided a scheduled stop of rolling stock between the power authority and the railway crossing, must monitor signal from a distance, arising from the length of brake path and a route , which corresponds to a signal observation time of 9 seconds, sets together, be visible. This is not possible, on the basis of local conditions the monitoring signal on a route that corresponds to a signal observation period of at least 7 seconds before the monitor signal that must be visible.

(6) the signal of monitoring with the proper role monitoring takes place, is to repeat, if to accommodate a hold of rail vehicles (for example, in stops, before signals) and planned on stopping distance length monitor signal from the holding point is not visible. A planned stop of all rolling stock from the railway crossing is provided, is one to make recognizable monitoring signal before the railway junction of the breakpoint.

(7) more railway crossings, which is a distance to each other less than braking distance length is followed by a railway crossing a monitor signal with the proper role monitoring takes place, can be for this group of railway crossings on braking distance length before the first railway crossing. The monitor signal is with a plaque that says the number of further following railway crossings, to which it applies, to provide. After the last railway junction is a table that shows the end of this group, to set up.

(8) more railway crossings, which is a distance to each other less than braking distance length is followed by a railway crossing can be placed a monitor signal with the proper role monitoring takes place, for this group of railway crossings on braking distance length before the first railway crossing and before any other railway crossing this group directly or for reasons of visibility of the monitoring signal according to further away a monitor signal be set up. This other railway crossings are to be provided with a table containing the number of still following railway crossings. After the last railway junction is a table that shows the end of this group, to set up.

(9) in the case of movement monitor signal, with the proper role monitoring takes place, it must be either immediately before the railway crossing or for reasons of visibility of the monitoring signal accordingly removed from the railway crossing. This is to ensure that the rail while maintaining can stop the par. 4 and 5, if necessary, before the railway crossing signal observation time according to.

(10) the monitoring signal with the monitoring of the proper status (monitoring of availability) is carried out, is accordingly farther away before the switch-on point, to set up at least on braking distance length before the railway crossing, anyway, but before the switch-on point or, if this is necessary for reasons of visibility of the monitoring signal.

(11) the monitoring signal is to be provided with a mast marking (rising at an angle to the right black stripes on a white back bright background). At speed on the track of over 60 km/h a constant yellow light is signal generator or a RCS with reflective fabric of type type 2 on the mast marking either (highly reflective) pursuant to section 4 to install StVZVO in 1998 in yellow colour.

Recording functions of light and light characters with barriers
