This level crossing was controlled by a signal box, a gate box. The crossing is south of Kintore [1st] station.

The railway was original single track and was doubled in 1880 between Dyce and Kintore [1st].

It was reduced to a single track again, in 1969, the lifted track being the Aberdeen bound line between Inverurie and Dyce.

The box, a gate box, was on the east side of the line, north of the road.

The signal box closed in 1973, replaced by automatic barriers.

The level crossing and railway remain open. The line has been redoubled (2019).
