Signal safari part 6

The signal off the Alma Branch is a fixed approach signal; it can’t even display “stop”. It tells trains to be prepared to stop at the next signal and that’s all; it conveys no block protection.

Coming to the end of my trip, the first shot is at Blackberry City. Next is a distant signal for movements entering the main from the Alma branch. Since a train has not choice of route in this case, why is approach diverging the appropriate aspect for this signal? Last shot shows main signals at Chatteroy.
