Long Delays On Melbourne's Trains This Morning
Metro is warning buses will be replacing trains between Epping and Bell stations on the South Morang line until at least 9am this morning - after a man was hit and killed by a train earlier this morning.
30 rail replacement buses will be running across the peak. Metro has tweeted that an additional ten buses are on the way.
This should add around an HOUR to your usual travel times.
A report will be prepared for the coroner.
