{12/3} New Street Old Gates

These are the New Street train gates in Brighton, Victoria. 

The New Street railway gates are of historical significance for their rarity as the last remaining functioning hand operated railway gates in the state.

There has been a big furore about these as there was an accident - a train hit the partially opened gate. As a consequence, they are currently not in operation which means that cars can't access the famous Beach Road from here. 

There is still a guy on duty though as he has to monitor the pedestrian gates....
