TRAINS are starting to resume as hundreds of commuters struggle to find their way home after stolen signal cables shut trains down in Melbourne’s west.
Buses have been replacing trains between Footscray and Williamstown and Footscray and Werribee, with Metro Trains tweeting at 4.55pm that stolen signal cables had caused train services to be suspended.
Passengers have found themselves stranded while waiting for buses at Footscray train station, with many taking to Twitter to register their disgust.
Footscray commuter Josh Meney said the station had erupted into “chaos” as dozens of stranded commuters attempted to make their way home.
“The buses aren’t leaving quick enough and are dumping people at the station,” he said.
“People are trying to go under cover because it’s raining and the streets are filled with cars trying to pick people up. It’s very busy.”
Two hours later, Metro Trains tweeted trains had started to resume, but buses were still assisting.
Passengers have been warned to allow extra travel time and listen for announcements at stations.
