AAP logoAAP 9/12/2016

A man has died after he was hit by a train on Melbourne's city loop.

The man was on the city loop track near Flagstaff railway station when he was struck about 2.40pm on Friday.

Victoria Police are investigating why he was there and will prepare a report for the coroner.

Metro advises city loop trains are unaffected on the Cranbourne, Pakenham, Frankston, Sunbury, Craigieburn, Upfield, South Morang and Hurstbridge lines.

However, trains along the Alamein, Belgrave, Lilydale and Glen Waverley lines are not running via the city loop and are running directly from Flinders St to Richmond.

Commuters on theses lines who want to connect to the city loop are advised to travel to Flinders St or Richmond stations.
