TRAIN travellers are winding at least a kilometre back in the rain at Camberwell station as they wait to get onto a bus to replace their usual ride.
Commuters should brace for delays of up to 70 minutes due to the works.
The station has been undergoing signal upgrades from 8pm but more works are on the way until December 5.
Metro Trains announced last month that buses would replace trains between Camberwell and Parliament all day from December 1 to 5.
Metro staff are handing out pieces of fruit to sweeten the wait but the line isn’t moving quickly, according to witnesses.
Staff at Blackburn station have been warning commuters the wait is a minimum of 70 minutes and urging passengers to take another form of transport.
Commuters have hit out on Twitter at the lack of buses running from Camberwell Station with one saying it is “a total mess”.
But a Metro spokeswoman said there was a lot of congestion at Camberwell Station and buses were leaving every 10 minutes.
Buses were being impacted due to traffic congestion and wet weather, she said.
The spokeswoman said 69 buses were currently taking passengers from Camberwell with another 14 buses on the way.
About 130 buses are in operation across the entire Metro Train network today due to works.
