Elizabeth Quay train station evacuated, commuters face delays

ELIZABETH Quay train station was evacuated this afternoon, causing commuter chaos as Perth neared peak hour.

Transperth warned people they could still expect delays as they embarked on their trips home from work.

Police attended the station after reports of two men entering a tunnel carrying a suitcase and a backpack.

But it appears the bags contained only rubbish.

The station has now reopened.

Services on the Mandurah and Joondalup lines were delayed, and travellers were being urged to allow extra time for their trips.

Some commuters took to Twitter to vent about their delay.
