New York modernised Hicksville Station

The New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced that the Hicksville station, part of the Long Island Rail Road system, has a new platform, complete with modern, state-of-the-art upgrades as part of a USD 121 million modernization of the Main Line hub in Nassau County.
The old 12-car concrete Platform A was demolished to make way for the new platform and a translucent canopy. New energy-efficient platform lighting and signage were also installed, along with a new Audio Visual Paging System, which includes train time signs and speakers. Concrete surfaces were painted while three existing stairways were replaced and one new staircase at the western pedestrian underpass was built. Construction has begun on a new, additional elevator hoist way in the station plaza.
Heated platform waiting rooms will be constructed this fall, as well as the commissioning of the new elevator and escalator, with the translucent canopy roof system to be completed this coming winter.
Other upcoming upgrades to help transform the 55-year-old station include Wi-Fi, USB charging stations an enhanced interior waiting room, and a video security system.
