COMMUTER chaos descended on Melbourne this morning as signal faults and broken boomgates brought half a dozen train lines to a grinding halt.
There were long delays on the Cranbourne, Hurstbridge, Lilydale, Pakenham, Werribee and Williamstown lines this morning.
Commuters called for refunds as one hour trips took more than two-and-a-half hours.
The delays have now cleared with all lines running a good service.
A caller told 3AW his commute from Berwick, which normally takes a little over an hour, had taken two-and-a-half hours.
Other commuters took to Twitter to demand refunds for their delayed trains.
“Two-and-a-half hours later I arrive at my destination. Thanks @metrotrains - where do we get a refund for your shambles of a service?” Simon tweeted.
Nathan tweeted: “@metrotrains requesting refund for my trip this morning. Can you please advise on the process?”
