Driveway gate

I have a drive maybe 20 - 25ft long to a detached garage. I'm wanting to fit a gate to the end which will match the fence at the side (4ft) for security and privacy as the road is quite busy.
The fence to the left is fixed using concrete posts and at the other side there's nothing.
I'm not sure how to fix the gate/ gates, do i use another conctret post to the right and can i then fix hinges to them (posts are steel reinforced)?
I'd idealy prefer 1 bigger gate instead of 2 but think it would be too heavy (want a close panel type) and would sag after a while?

Does anyone know of any online guides, stores that give pics, guides, prices?
