TRAINS are back on track on the Cranbourne line after an equipment fault caused major delays earlier today.
It was found at 7.15am, repaired by 8am before striking again and forcing a lengthy suspension between Cranbourne and Dandenong today.
Instead, buses stopped at Cranbourne, Merinda Park and Hallam, and a shuttle bus ran from Lynbrook to Hallam.
Passengers had to jump on bus route 890 from Lynbrook to Dandenong, route 891 Lynbrook to Hallam and change at Hallam for a Pakenham line train.
Alternatively they could catch the 893 bus stopping at Cranbourne, Merinda Park, Lynbrook and Hallam, the 841 Bus running from Cranbourne to Narre Warren Bus or the 897 route from Cranbourne to Merinda Park to Lynbrook.
Passengers had to allow an extra 40 minutes to get to their destination.
But the woes don’t entirely end today with Hughesdale Station closed until June 30 next year, buses replacing trains between Caulfield and Dandenong all day tomorrow until November 24.
A Metro Trains spokeswoman said updates are available on their website.
