Would this be simpler?
I found a Bueler adjustable time delay relay. If theres a NC limit switch wired between the power source and the time delay relay, a PB will activate the relay, the relay will open the gate and the limit switch will cut the power to the relay and stop the gate. One of these systems on the open side and the same system on the close side of the circuit.   While the limit switch on the open position of the gate has cut all power to the gate opener, the circuit that closes the gate is fully powered and can close the gate and reset the open side for next time.   
What part of this theory is right or wrong?
How reliable are the timer relays? Seems like a simple mechanism that would last well??
The TDR's are very reliable. If you adjust the delay to be just a bit longer than the gate travel time this could work fine.
If the TDR has a spare set of NC contacts, wire them in series with the opposite circuits push button so that you can't activate open & close at the same time.
