Train pain and roads blocked to kickstart Australian Open
It was a painful Monday for Melburnian commuters on both rail and road.
EastLink was out of action for most of the afternoon after a truck carrying potentially dangerous gas cylinders rolled.
It shut EastLink at the Monash Freeway.
Meanwhile, there was plenty of pain for those catching the train.
The Cranbourne and Pakenham lines were suspended due to a train fault.
Buses replaced trains but struggled to keep up and impacts were felt across the network.
Metro advised commuters to find another way home if possible.
Several other lines have been impacted by delays.
