Metro have tweeted that trains will resume between Caulfield and Moorabbin in time for the evening peak.
"Train services are now resuming Caulfield - Moorabbin after an earlier incident," tweeted Metro at 4.01pm. "Some Frankston line trains may be delayed up to 15 minutes."
However, the resumption of service may not be going smoothly.
"This is news to our driver stuck at Malvern," tweeted passenger Bryce Appleton. "We've been told we're not moving."
Melbourne's train network was earlier hit by major disruption for the third day in a row, with Frankston line trains suspended between Caulfield and Moorabbin.
Trains were halted after a person was struck by a train and killed at Bentleigh station at 12.50pm, with buses replacing trains between Caulfield and Moorabbin.
As with the Belgrave and Lilydale lines on Tuesday and Wednesday, Metro had advised passengers to allow for a substantially longer journey time and had warned that trains would remain suspended past the evening peak.
"Customers on the Frankston line, please allow a 45 minute extra travel time this pm. This is due to an earlier incident," Metro tweeted earlier this afternoon. "The disruption on the Frankston line will exceed the usual expected clearance time. Emergency services are on site."
VicRoads closed Centre Road in Bentleigh in both directions as a result of the death, from Nicholson Street to Bendigo Avenue.
Metro have also tweeted that an electrical fault near Tottenham means some outbound Sunbury trains may be delayed for up to 15 minutes.
