LIRR countdown clocks to get upgrade

Posted: Updated:
WOODBURY -

Countdown clocks at Long Island Rail Road stations could soon be getting an upgrade.

Last week, the railroad installed clocks that tell commuters when the train is set to arrive in real time.

They were installed at 121 of the railroad's 124 stations.

Some commuters complained the times were inaccurate.

The LIRR tells Newsday it plans to install GPS data on every train in order to make those times more accurate.
