This crossing is a weird one. It's a pedestrian crossing. This crossing used to be an at-grade crossing until 1998, when the EJ&E closed the crossing and turned it into the pedestrian crossing you see here.

But here's the weird thing about this crossing. It's got a 4" mast to the left side with a Safetran Hybrid bell!

I think the EJ&E is skimping a little bit for a crossing that gets 11 daily trains.

In October 2019, we see the crossing was removed and replaced with a little overpass with pedestrians walking underneath the tracks now. The overpass was completed in early 2015. The hybrid bell was replaced with a Safetran Type 3 before the overpass was constructed however.
