Train services have resumed between Melbourne‘s Flinders Street and Sandringham line after a woman was fatally hit by a train in Hampton. 

Emergency services were called to Holyrood Street after 4pm, a police spokesperson said.

Passengers travelling home from the city during peak hour were instructed to catch replacement buses from the Arts Centre. However, with replacement services already under strain due to major project works along the Frankston, Pakenham, and Cranbourne lines, long queues for the buses quickly formed.

Metro Trains anticipate further delays as they recover their timetable.

Pictures uploaded to Twitter show the extent of the queues on Princes Bridge.
