Dear all,

for tunnel gate and bascule bridge we need the following elements:

1. position in infrastructure (IS element)

2. conditions for opening and closing: (route setting,
activationCondition, hasTvdSection) analogue to levelCrossingIL
activation/deactivation conditions (IL element)

3. Should we consider more than one track in parallel for a tunnel gate?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen/Best regards
