That's a proper quiet-zone quad-gate set-up with median signals if you don't have a proper median.
R.I.P. HMCR 8933; 1951-2013. Hasn't been moved since it was put next to Huntsville High School in 2015.

Active crossing near Newark-on-Trent, England:
https://www.google.com/maps/@53.0920595 ... 312!8i6656

Also, right nearby is one of the few diamonds in the UK:
https://www.google.com/maps/@53.0900544 ... 312!8i6656

Another active crossing in Balderton, England:
https://www.google.com/maps/@53.0611001 ... 312!8i6656

Looks like this was meant to be a road crossing (probably a private user worked one), but it was never finished and is now just a pedestrian crossing!
