I thought they built a flyover over that crossing years ago?

Yes they did but the buses serve the station so they go across the level crossing.

There are so many roundabouts and slip roads in that area, the only problem should be not being to access the port area. The delays must be caused by drivers not being able to turn round and find another route.
Before the flyover was built, that was the busiest level crossing in western Europe in terms of road traffic.
