There’s major delays on Melbourne’s Hurstbridge and Mernda train lines, which is sure to be a headache for anyone heading to the MCG for the AFL preliminary finals.
Greater Western Sydney and Collingwood are due to clash at the home of AFL on Friday evening, both sides vying for a spot in the grand final.
But someone has been hit by a train at Jolimont Train Station, setting off a chain reaction of delays.
It happened just after 3.30pm, with Metro Trains springing into action.
“Replacement buses ordered, however will take over 60 minutes to arrive,” they wrote on their official Twitter (or X) account.
“Allow extra travel time. Check information displays and listen for announcements.”
By 5pm, the incident had mostly been cleared, with trains resuming between Parliament and Clifton Hill stations.
