That's a proper quiet-zone quad-gate set-up with median signals if you don't have a proper median.
There should be a legal limit as to how humid it can be on any given day during the summer here in the South...

Active crossing near Newark-on-Trent, England:

Also, right nearby is one of the few diamonds in the UK:
