There is queueing traffic at Bosham level crossing because the barriers are currently stuck down.
Sussex Police was called at 12.50pm today, Friday, November 13, because there were fears motorists could still attempt to cross because the barriers cover only one lane on each side.
An officer is at the scene directing traffic, a police spokesman said.
Network Rail has been informed and is working to try to open the crossing.
There have been a number of crossing failures in the area in recent weeks, with the crossing at Chichester Railway Station down on at least two occasions.
