Aston township in conjunction with our neighbors Middletown Township and Chester a heights Borough have been engaged with SEPTA to try and find ways to reduce the noise associated with the new rail service to Wawa Station.

While the rail crossing and rail yard are not in Aston Township, residents in Aston have voiced their complaints about the noise associated with the new service and rail yard which started in August 2022.

We are pleased that SEPTA has agreed to no longer test the horns of their trains at any time at the Lenni yard. 

Special thanks to Commissioner Joe McGinn and our township management and engineer in working diligently with SEPTA, our residents, state elected officials, and neighbors to get SEPTA to make this significant change in their operations.

The township will continue to explore additional options to further reduce noise related to regional rail service in Aston township.
