Mandurah line technical issue causes massive commuter delays
Commuters are facing massive delays after trains on the Mandurah Line were cancelled due to a technical issue during rush hour.
Trains between Perth Underground and Mandurah have now resumed, but people are being warned of delays, with hundreds of people still queued in Perth CBD.
One commuter said they’d been in a queue for more than 45 minutes, while another complained that a demand for rideshare app UBER had led to price surcharges.
“Trains on the Mandurah Line are currently delayed due to a technical issue,” Transperth said in a statement.
“Trains will continue to run however they will not be running to the regular schedule.
“Please allow extra travelling time and be aware that delayed trains may not connect with timetabled bus and train services.”
