Those residents have asked elected officials for help in getting the railroad reduce the volume of announcements being made aboard trains at the Carle Place train station. Some residents in the area say the announcements are so loud, they can clearly hear them from their homes during off hours.
Senator Martins, Assemblyman McKevitt and Legislator Nicolello met at the train station and were assured that the railroad would work toward minimizing the noise so that residents are not affected. The election officials stated they would revisit the issue if the noise was not abated, adding that the residents deserve peace and quiet while they are in the comfort of their homes.
