TRAIN services between Perth and Rockingham on the Mandurah line have been disrupted this afternoon.

According to a Transperth spokeswoman there has been a loss of overhead power along the line.

“Luckily all trains on the line were at station, so all passengers were able to get off trains at a platform,” she said.

Passengers stranded at train stations will be collected once replacement buses reach them.

Crews are onsite working on a solution.

Replacement buses are running from Elizabeth Quay Busport to Rockingham and to Mandurah.

Frustrated commuters have taken to social media to air their grievances, with many annoyed at a lack of signage or direction from Transit Officers upon arrival at Elizabeth Quay Busport.

Some were told to make their way to Perth Busport on Wellington Street instead, only to be informed that buses were in fact leaving from Elizabeth Quay.
