Buses are replacing trains between Berwick and Pakenham after a motor vehicle was struck by a train at Beaconsfield.

25 rail buses have been ordered and are on their way but might not arrive till 8am. This is obviously a massive disruption and there are major delays being reported.

Metro Trains are urging commuters to consider local buses.

Trains will continue to run from Flinders Street to Berwick.
