  • Thank you for your report. We are not allowed by Law to have any audio on a dual signal as this can cause confusion when a person hears the audio of the other lamps. We will send an engineer to check regarding the lack of a tactile.

  • Engineer has attended site and checked operation of all tactile units. There are no bleepers installed at this location due to this being a dual crossing point where either crossing can operate at different times.
